But, Hank, that is already provided for in the FTP specs. The PASS command is
not a required command (for that matter, neither is USER). The possibilities
are:

  USER, Reply 2xx
  USER, Reply 331, PASS, Reply 2xx
  USER, Reply 332, ACNT, Reply 2xx
  USER, Reply 331, PASS, Reply 332, ACNT, Reply 2xx

If you want to use SPOOL for a USER name which requires no password, but does
need a user id via the ACNT command, then that "user" (service, really) can
simply DISK DUMP the resultant file into the target virtual machine's reader
queue. If a USER name convention is used throughout the net, it will greatly
simplify the "interactive" script to permit brainless automatons to manage the
process.
