ProFTPd sucks.

After hours of fighting with it, I've determined that ProFTPd sucks hard core. It's buggy, unmaintained, and security-hole ridden.

I guess I'll now focus my attention on Net::FTPServer, which I can subclass and modify as needed.

I don't think there's a single good FTP server for Unix. I should stop working on LiveJournal for awhile and work on things like helping the ProFTPd people out.... who else is going to? But will I? Probably not. Everybody's too busy.

*sigh*

Update: Screw helping the ProFTPd people ... Net::FTPServer looks mad cool.
