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.
