SSLFTP, eh? Suppose you'd have to *know* that both server and
client were up for that, which is a little more than the average
user can reckon. Works if everybody's required to use your client
with your server. Still, I can see where you guys are going:
providing a secure option within the familiar (GUI) FTP-client user
experience. Plus keep the product going, in light of the SSH2
challenge. Once they go SSH, they're not coming back.

Used your client product for years, by the way. Good stuff.
Industry standard for Windows, IMO.
