spot: please don't mention the daemons of /. I'd hate to see them getting busy here.

Released ftpcopy-0.3.3.

When i wrote the program i thought something like "why bother? It's me own FTP server anyway": I wrote the program to automatically copy files between 2 servers. When i re-read the code i thought the same. Later i decided to use it to mirror other servers, too, and even later i decided to make the code available to others ...
When i read about the scp security hole on bugtraq i suddenly *knew* where to look into.

The lesson? Don't allow bad code to exist, even for internal use.
