No, we are not putting anything based on lukemftpd n our tree. It's
way too complex and has historically contained root-compromising bugs.
I want our base system ftpd to be as simple as possible.

I agree that the default ftpd should be simple. Yet for some reason I chose to use lukemftpd, maybe it had some anonftp features that were not available or at least not clearly documented in our ftpd.

I think the most important thing nowadays is a proper default support for anonymous ftp. For some strange reason we have to add every system account to /etc/ftpusers, i think that needs to be changed.
