I'm not sure what the list thinks of this, since FTP is clearly
advocated as one of the upgrade methods on the Codex as well. However,
FTP is hopelessly insecure. As a user, I would _never_ use something
that forces me to use FTP. As a developer, I would _never_ write
something that uses FTP by default.

Just my 2c.
