Agree. And, having looked at the responses here, I agree with Jeff too
that trying to figure out a valid FTP path will cause more support
headaches than just requiring that the user figure it out.
I don't think I need four pieces of data, only two valid paths. No one
seems to have any trouble with the HTTP path, so that leaves just one
Not counting the one I developed myself over the weekend, of course...
