Don't tell me there's no possibility to determine if the server 
allows anonymous login. Even if you can't know in advance (I'm 
not familiar with the protocol), you could still just login in 
background to check this.
So the app can at least get to know if server allows anonymous 
(and might also allow non-anon) or if there can only be login  
with username/password.

My other crits still stand anyway.
