lftp is not a ncftp replacement.  Its command syntax is different and
breaks many exsiting scripts which depend on ncftp/ncftpget/ncftpput.
 Additionally it will be jarring for the end users of our boxes who
have come to rely on ncftp.  (Yeah, we can build it from source, but
I'd rather spend my time working on the actual services we deploy
instead of building things that have been there and should be there)

Additionally, removal of something that has been in Red Hat Linux
since 4.0 without any notice in the Release Notes is unaccpetable.  If
ncftp will not be put back into the distribution, please minimally
update the Release Notes for AS 3 to reflect its removal so this bug
is not repeated over and over and over and over.  It's all about
"expectation managemant" :)
