If we put an FTP server inside the appliance, things are better.  FTP

server side (inside the appliance) the FTP server is running as "root"
so it can make arbitrary changes to the filesystem.

Please make FTP die already!  :-)

How about HTTP (WebDAV) or - better - just use the ssh file transfer protocol?
