I think you misunderstand -- it is a CLOSED subnet -- four or five servers, with two or three users in a secure room. The ftp passwords never leave the secure environment -- no other machines are connected to it -- where exactly are spyware sniffers going to come from (OS loaded out of the box -- no connection with outside) -- even if there were sniffers, nothing can ever leave the subnet!!

I spend a lot of time on working on closed subnets -- ftp is v useful for systems when there's only one or two users with access -- and everything is done in a secure room. Do we really need to sledgehammer of ssh? Admittedly I didn't RTFA (on principle, you understand), so why should everyone be denied ftp when it is not dangerous to all?
