I just wanted to suggest, in case there are length limits for FTP
login parms, that they be long.
I generally use maximum length allowed per OS or FTP daemon (despite
any RFCs regarding this) for ftp and other passwords. In a nutshell,
it would be nice if there wasn't any validation of character or
length in VEDIT for FTP login and PW if possible.
