That is really great news if we can have embedded ftp server.

Sounds like you your should either rename your 
lib to libNetServices or make a separate libFTP 
and libHTTP. What speaks for the latter is that 
these protocols are independent from each other 
and having two libs will allow you independent 
maintenance cycles, also making things a bit 
easier for users. They will also match other 
'protocol' libs (libSMTP, libPOP...). I imagine 
that libFTP will also merge in the FTP client
