Yes, this is probably how things will work out anyways. At least for
some time until we have had the time to do the full replacement.
However, pretty much everything that is currently in FtpServer
security-wise has a better replacement in JSecurity. So, for the
long-run I think a full replacement would be the best option. But,
while JSecurity is incubating, this might be a good option, also to
have us get a better feeling for JSecurity before betting fully on it.
