Niklas, speaking with my Tomcat hat on, you're definitely welcome to
join the dev@tomcat.a.o mailing list and bounce your thoughts off the
Tomcat team.  I'm not sure if any existing committers would be
particularly interested, but you might at least get some constructive
discussions around your ideas.  We've been adding more connectors
(heck, we've got like four connectors just for HTTP/1.1 already), so
if you've got an FTP connector that fits the Tomcat Connector API,
that could be sweet.
