No it wouldn't.

Getting FTP code into a state were it mostly works with most FTP servers
is so much of a pain and debugging hassle that it's not worth it.
(Plus, you can insert the usual NIH boilerplate here.)

That said, someone porting gvfs to Windows would be awesome. Just
because it gives you useful support for SMB.


who wrote the gvfs FTP client and is still debugging it way too much.
And who's also actively kicking people into not writing a separate FTP
client for webkit-gtk.
