Comment (by DD32):

 Reasons not to use ajax:
  * AJAX is not the solution to everything, Nor does it make things
  * Requires JavaScript
  * Breaking it into multiple chunks makes the code much more complex, and
 requires passing the FTP username back and forth from the blog multiple
 times (in your scenario, about 6-8 times over a likely non-encrypted link)
  * Working in a non-JS version to handle every other case where JS is not
 available, or they choose not to use it, means its yet another function to
 link them all together.
  * Keeping track of temporary files between pages

 I've not seen any reasons that would cause the need for a JS version, So
 i'd personally recommend against it myself.. But a lot of the rest of
 !WordPress is starting to use it.. but wherever its used, there is usually
 a fall-back.
