I'm a bit lost as to the relative advantages/disadvantages of
ftp/http/fsp as far as dselect goes.  Can someone clarify why I'd want
to use fsp or http as opposed to ftp for my package install/upgrading? 
I can see where it might matter if I were behind a firewall, but other
than that, what would be the difference?
