But it would have to be clear that inclusion into trunk would not by 
default mean that they would be included in the next major release.

Especially for mod_ftp, I think that it requires many more eyeballs 
and a comprehensive test suite before it should be part of a stable 
release. Otherewise, it would just be a source of lots of security 
issues that need to be handled and would tie up resources.
