One of the things about programs like wuftp is that
they have vulnerabilities because they are being used
and maintained.  For my $0.02 I'd rather go with
something like wuftp that is being maintained and poked
and prodded than with something I've never heard of
(and I'd never heard of oftpd before just now ...)
