Please spare us the attitude :-) Use the mini-sshd that is provided. 
Developer resources (time) is limited, as you say, and I am quite sure 
that the core developers have more important things to do.  If you have 
the time and energy to compile and build a system with telnetd and ftpd 
just so you can use it, go ahead.  Otherwise why even bring it up?
