Can you clarify the difference between "ftp->ftp gateway" and "native
FTP proxy support"? Please assume that we are "using HTTP semantics
internally" in both cases, which I interpret as not altering the and Store code much -- the new FTP code will convert FTP
commands into HTTP messages for internal processing and the code outside
FTP client and server modules will remain pretty much the same.

Thank you,
