I also like the idea of a web server instead of an FTP server. A basic
web server would be quite a bit easier to write than an FTP server, and
it could later be extended with a basic WebDAV implementation to support
more filesystem-like read-write access.

The downside is that WebDAV is possibly more complex to implement than
FTP, and a HTTP server without WebDAV is only really a partial solution,
since there's no really easy way to do guest->host transfers.
