I think ncftp should be the one to be removed from Core.  lftp has
more functionality (http), and is installed by default, whereas ncftp
is not installed by default.  Also, while ncftp itself is OSS
(Clarified Artistic License), other components from the same company
are not (NcFTPd server, libNcFTP).

vi, ed, and ex are old too.  Should we remove them?

Do tar or pax provide equivalent functionality?
