Yeah, but what if both of the machines involved are running ftpd in
this fashion? Then what do you do?
Put it in the publicly writable "incoming" directory in the anonymous
FTP area? Most sites don't even have one any more because almost
everybody who _did_ have one has had it used by anonymous folks from
the net as a staging area to distribute pirated software and
