Peter, I think that the FTP gateway would be a good first step.
Unfortunately, the instructions in the url above fail for the tahoe
installed from from Ubuntu 9.10 repositories.

"Failed to load application: your twisted is lacking"

With a working FTP, and a default alias, many users would be able to "just
use tahoe" than are able to at this point.

This is broken FTP implementation a "feature" of the 9.10 build?
