[tahoe-dev] #512: FTP frontend

Another new ticket, copied to the mailing list for discussion:

Peter says it would be really useful for us to offer an FTP frontend.
This could be done outside the node (in some sort of bridge process, or
via a FUSE layer), but I'm currently thinking that it would work best if
it were inside the node.

Twisted has some ftp server support, but I haven't looked at it in a
long time. My thoughts are:

    * add a config knob to the tahoe node that turns on FTP support.

    * add an authorization mechanism: a table that maps
      username/password to rootcap. It should be possible to configure
      this to use the allmydata PHP-based login mechanism instead.



cheers,
 -Brian
