The original point was that if all you wanted was to setup an anonymous FTP
server (in it's own chroot jail, serving only the files you wanted to),
that djb's anonftp is a minimalistic, highly secure choice.

It does not grant anonymous access to your whole system.

It does do weird things with directory listings, though, which can be
patched if anyone's looking at it and needs a normal ls output.
