Not a lot yet. I have a minimal ftp server that would be perfect to use with
qemu, with much of the code rewritten. However, to make it interface with slirp
a lot more work is needed (basicly the ftp server uses sockets while slirp works
with tcp/ip packets directly. Thus I have to write a big interface layer (a sort
of BSD sockets library on top of the slirp tcp/ip stack).

The other approach that I've opted out of is to hack slirp to have support for
the ftp protocol and run the server externally thru real sockets. If you or
anyone else wants to try this, I'm willing to help a little.

Infinite complexity begets infinite beauty.
Infinite precision begets infinite perfection.
