I don't see /home/ftp in the FHS...why does every Arch box need this
dir? I certainly don't use it, and seems like it shouldn't be there
(/srv/ftp *maybe*).

And furthermore, it's a much larger undertaking. You're more than
welcome to update all our ftp clients to use a different dir and then
let me know, but until that happens, I'm not in the mood to fix 400
things at the same time.

it fails into the same category as our famous "webserver home dir"
reports & threads.

Ahh, I didn't even realize this. Well a user should have a homedir, so
there are no more complaints here.
