playing devils' advocate here
i do not like the fact of adding an insecure protocol (ftp and tftp) to a product (scrt) that is really geared towards secure communications. so, lets potentially disclose our credentials using an ftp method to upgrade a router. not the most secure method. now, i do have another idea.

starting with i belive one of the 12.3 releases (possible late 12.2, can't remember), IOS started supporting SCP as a method for transfer of files. IOS has also adopted the method of HTTPS as a transfer method. i would rather see the ability to use SCP/HTTPS as transfer methods than tftp/ftp, IMHO anyways.
