Actually, if you ever install the "Personal Web Server" that comes with
Windows 95/98/NT Workstation or IIS for NT Server, you've got a perfectly
functional FTP server. Or, if you prefer, you can use WarFTPD or something
similiar. 

I tend to agree with the idea that VNC shouldn't become bloatware. On the
other hand, the "built-in" web server used to serve up the Java applet could
be used to transfer files. It might take a little code on the server side to
be able to handle that, but the "transfer" part could occur on a web browser
or with any application that will do uploads via http. It doesn't have to be
incorporated directly into the VNC client.
