I really want to just DELETE the gftp-text binary from the gftp package in order to save some distribution package and filesystem space. gftp the GUI client is great, but gftp-text really sucks. I can't imagine that anybody prefers it over lftp or ncftp, and it has the usability of "ftp".

Anybody see any good reason to keep gftp-text? If I don't hear any good reason within the next 18 hours it will be deleted.

I used to contribute to gftp (I spent some time working on a Mac OS X port), so I've studied the source to both in some detail. IMO, the text port is most useful for people to understand the architecture of gftp/lib/, as it removes all the multithreading aspects, and the GTK+ code, and makes the architecture far more clear. Maybe one day it'll become more than that, but lftp is far superior to gftp-text anyway (IMO).
