I see this more valuable to httpd as a case study in alternate
protocols than the ftp: scheme it offers.  Until we have several
modules, mod_snmp, mod_ftp, etc, we will never truly recognize
where we must divide connection from resource from request.

Some have asked if there is anything more to do.  Others asked
if it would support -x- (caching, content, whatever).

Resources are served as sub-requests of the 'connection' (login)
request.  So they can contain anything, be cached or not, etc.
The entire gamut of what you can serve from http: flows to ftp:

But certainly more can be done.  The request model in an httpd 2.2
or 2.4 version can become much cleaner, as we better divide the
components of httpd.
