Can someone explain why this is useful?  Asking Apache to serve FTP
strikes me as kind of like asking if there is an add-on so 'vi' can
evaluate spreadsheets or 'Word' can act as a digital audio editor.  Why
make Apache into something it isn't?  Why not just use one of the many
fine FTP servers available?
