FTP needs to be avoided at all costs!
- no transactions
- even more difficult if there are multiple "consumers"
- no acknowledges
- is the file now deletet or what?!
- list timeout (because firewall kiks in since there is no heartbeat mechanism and no data stream) if there are many files
- active / passive mode confusion
- firewall fuck up
- unreliable dynamic port openings
- sftp / ftps confusion
- most ftps some kinda broken

As long as you retain this notice you can do whatever you want with this stuff.
If we meet some day, and you think this stuff is worth it, you can buy me a non alcohol-free beer in return.
