I haven't looked at the code at all, so I really don't know whether 
it'll even have a chance to work. I know that there's another project 
out there called mod_ftpd that uses httpd as some sort of glorified 
inetd and doesn't even touch the httpd filter chain, I'm hoping that 
mod_ftp is a tad more evolved that that :)

A few pointers would indeed be nice :)
