    bundling basic web-based ftp into WP would be a great timesaver for me. ftp is the tool that I use in combo with WP + Firefox. I could reasonably blog from my cell phone or from my mother-in-law's without tedious gyrations

    I am not sure I understand. Can you elaborate on how you use FTP to publish content to WordPress? There are phone friendly interfaces for WordPress and new phone blog clients are likely in the near future.

    What's wrong with FireFTP?

    Implementing FTP into WordPress to help with uploading would be like implementing an image editor to help with scaling, cropping and resizing - why re-invent the wheel?!

    In the context of
    One-click installation of themes/plugins from admin panel
    http://wordpress.org/extend/ideas/topic.php?id=31
    it makes sense.

    Sounds like typical plugin functionality to me. Why add this to the core?

    No way am I going to allow the public http server process write access to my files and directories. It would become intrusion path #1.

    It's much better to only allow upload through the ssl-encrypted admin interface. Less of a chance of password theft, less chance of successfull brute force password cracking attack, ...

    And webservers very often have 30sec timeouts...

    This does not sound like a good idea.
    Besides, ftp programs like SmartFTP, can offer so much more than a browser based ftp program.
    Also, there is several good browser based ftp clients you can use. Or simply write ftp:// instead of http://
