(Some of our clients do indeed have user names with colons in them). We've found some very nasty bugs in its support for simultaneous downloads. It behaves badly with certain types of FTP servers. Etc.

The API should certainly at least be in etc instead of std.  I'm inclined to say the same of std.zip too, though that is at least quite mature.
