That doesn't work.  With most FTP servers, logging in as anonymous lets
you in on the / directory, and logging in eponymously lets you in on the
/ directory as well.  But an ls -la would show entirely different
contents, simply because the / directory for anon users is completely
different to that of an eponymous user.

I insist.  GNOME *has* to ask the user whether to log in anonymously or
with a user/pw combo, and it also *has* to determine whether logging in
anonymously is a valid operation for the requested connection.
