I really don't like the idea of rolling our own protocol for this.  It
smacks of a combination of NiH and overkill.  We'd also have to continue
to support ftp for the foreseeable future anyways...

A dameon which uses inotify in order to do immediate processing and
actually does cleanup properly seems a much more sane option to me.
