Comment (by ryan):

 Committed a minimalist first pass.  Let's see if we can stabilize this in
 time for 2.5.   If we can't, we'll strip it out and move it to 2.6.  This
 uses DD32's filesystem abstraction.  I decided not to do the chmod 777
 thing like so many plugins do.  If the server is running as the user, the
 code will do direct writes to the filesystem, otherwise FTP is used.
 Right now ftp is forced for testing purposes.  ftpext works for me on the
 ftp servers I tested against.  ftpsockets needs work to bring it up to
 speed with the changes to ftpext.  Lot's more error checking and user
 feedback is needed.
