However broad they are, they don't have to use the features.
Reconsider Custom if you've rejected it on the basis of the black
propaganda.  [`User friendly' is a pretty meaningless term, doubtless
not intended to cover my use of Custom, for instance.]

Please don't propagate the lie about VMS support in ange-ftp (which
does _not_ come from ange, I hasten to add).  I say `lie' advisedly in
Pieri's case, at least.  I assume it gets repeated by most others in
good faith despite the obvious bigotry.  However, it's trivial to
check, even if it wasn't adequately refuted in newsgroup archives and
you didn't have the source.

(progn (require 'ange-ftp)
       (apropos "^ange-.*vms"))

Presumably if ange-ftp support breaks, someone who needs it will
either fix it or supply the necessary information as usual.
