good point :)...and I just logged into master now to check...
dupload isn't there

hmm and since the files are small...no real problem...and since you are
sshed in anyway (we should hope) its not too bad giving it your
pgp passphrase...

I don't see the need to go through the extra work of 
this when we have a perfectly fine dupload....why not just
have dupload installed on master for installing from master?

it would just be ftp'in to itself...no real problem with speed
(tho...maybe dupload could be made to realize it is on master
and "skip the ftp middle man")
