I've had a very quick glance at Stephan Richter's Zope3 book - if I 
glanced right, it looks like Zope3 has it's own ftp server? - which 
accesses the file system through an interface(s).  Just mentioning as 
while someone is looking at both frameworks in this area, it might be 
worth stealing from Zope3 for the Twisted VFS interface.

Though, the biggest hole with the sprint VFS interface is asynchronous 
data transfers - which wouldn't be an issue for Zope.
