I suspect that you're fixing the large file issues while you're at it?

Another thing I noticed when we started to look at mod_ftp (looking at 
strace/truss-output trying to figure out why things didn't work) was 
that it stats all entries in a directory twice, first explicitly and 
then via the subreq. Wouldn't the subreq be enough? It's no biggie for 
now, but it would be nice to get rid of unneccessary stats as a bonus 

/Nikke - eager to give it a spin :)
