Hey, you know my issues better than me now! ;)
Assuming a combination of patches from you, Carl, Romano, and others
correct these (and other) various problems, how much of the FTP scheme
handler code is being patchd? 25%, 50%, 75%?
Not withstanding the vagaries of the FTP standard / protocol, have we
reached the point where a number of FTP related functions should be
replaced by a merge of the various patches out there? Or have I
underestimated the complexity of the task? I'll volunteer to test anything
against the two sites I have access to (the second of which has a subset
of the problems identified above).
