It's not a matter of what it runs on, so much as what can connect to it.
If it's pluggable and allows a samba or appleshare or ifolder plug-in to
exist, you get the same UI for sharing your files through all these
methods, and people on Windows, OSX, or whatever, can also view your
files, as opposed to only people who might have something that supports
both Rendezvous and Webdav.

Does gnome-user-share do everything over https and take advantage of all
that extra robustness that you keep going on about? As Sean stated, to
do so, you would have to go edit a bunch of text files and run command
line utilties to set up all the htpasswd stuff, and aliases to point to
other directories than ~/Public.

And also, please point me to all the security holes in libsoup and
epittance, if you are going to market "secure web server" for the
inclusion of g-u-s.
