There is much work todo to get all parts of muddleftpd modularized.
But see the task list, there are some tasks, one is Module support.
Suggestions for Tasks always welcome.

It is added, but not fully functional yet. It doesnt install the auth
modules today, for example.
(Thats why the state of this Task is at 80%, not 100. Hmm, well, i set
that to 80%, Beau needs to use the Task module more :) )

Go on and send patches. :)

Talk to Beau, its his source.

If it applies cleanly I apply it in a branch so we can
test it before it gets into MAIN.

(That is the way development now works for Muddleftpd. MAIN only gets
code reviewed and accepted by Beau. Every Developer can create branches
and play around there doing everything he wants, even breaking
muddleftpd. :) )
