Most unix machines have more than one port.  If you want to get off into 
writing code to fork off another process and start an ftp session back to 
the client requesting the file transfer then have fun.  Personally I feel 
that having a seperate ftp server running would be a much more sensible 
thing.  A MUD is meant to serve a game,  ftp daemons are meant to serve 
files, and as such each is better at their job the the other could ever 
be :)
