The attached patch factors out FTP Bounce scan from the various files
it resided in (nmap.h, nmap.cc, scan_engine.cc, global_structures.h)
into nmap_ftp.h and nmap_ftp.cc.

The purpose is to make it easier to convert this functionality to some
more-appropriate implementation such as NSE (if NSE-based port
scanning is ever committed). At the very least, it de-clutters some
core files. Your thoughts and testing are much appreciated.


I'd first need to find a suitable server to test the patch against
(are there still some??) but the idea sounds excellent to me, and so
does the patch at first sight.

I have no time to work on NSE-based port scanning at the moment but
the patch still lies in nmap-exp/henri, and I can provide some help if
someone is interested in reviving it. I still believe that this would
have a great potential.
