In uCdist, you can find a small implementation of an FTP server:

It seems that uCdist is not maintained anymore, or I cannot find a
website easily.

You can find an archive of uCdist here:

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=89503&package_id=95361&release_id=186058

Does anybody has news of uCdist?
