Agreed. This whole CVS only is crap. It should be a proper signed tarball that people can actually verify.

Seriously... reinventing the wheel is fun... And yes I find it better than lftp for interactive use. Just like I find zsh better for interactive use compared to bash.
lftp still has it's uses(i.e. great for scripting it). yafc makes working with ftp a pleasure...
And yes... there will always be more apps that do the same thing more libs that do the same thing etc...
It's that state of: "Just because I can I will" :)
