Hi, Craig, and welcome to the project.  :)

There seems to be some overlap with a proposal Ragahavendra Talur sent out
a couple of days ago.


This seems like an excellent opportunity to collaborate.  Ideally, I think
it would be useful to have both an FTP-client-like "shell" and a set of
standalone "one shot" commands, based on as much common code as possible.
