I'm not an ASF member...and I'm not sure what in this message triggered 
this thought, but...for what its worth.

I'm glad to see this work as well.  Just to throw out another potential 
benefit down the road of this work.  I could easily see this resulting 
in FTPS support finally being available in open source.  Not that I'm a 
big fan of FTPS in general, but not having an FTPS server available in 
the open source world is something of a gap that probably should be filled.
