There are many aspects :
- legal, as while incubating, AFAIK, JSecurity can't release, when 
FtpServer can : how does it fit ?
- to cover case #1, you can still use the external JSecurity version, as 
an external jar (but what about the IP problems ?)
- cross-improvements : as mentioned by Niclas, if FtpServer can 
complement Jsecurity, and vice-versa, that would be interesting for both 
projects.

I don't know about #1, but I think this is the main concern, so far. 
Anyone has a strong opinion on this point ?
