What is the purpose of the FTP setup? Not really clear on that. If modules can be installed easily from the web GUI, and I have complete access to my own server, why would I even need the FTP option? I don't like leaving an FTP server running for a number of reasons, so this seems to be a required step, but totally unnecessary in my situation. I'd love to be able to bypass this if the reason for it doesn't apply to me.
