Great stuff Rein,

I'm in VK2 at the moment so the server at home won't be upgraded for a
week I'm afraid. I like the idea of that GETCAMP command, perhaps we
could extend that to a GETHARBOUR command or whatever is near,

Also, good that the central user repository is now gone. The upload
methos is good enough.
