This is NOT one of them.
The whole value of collaborative projects is that you can just
write a rough-few-words and 'throw it out'.
The next collaborator(s) can add some value to it, and throw it to 
the next.....etc.
Hence via several steps of successive refinement, one uses division
of labour [different persons have different skills/knowledge] and
builds the product with minimum total effort.

Does any one know how User:, Password:  map to:
FTP.Tool  -> 
NetSystem.SetUser ftp:user at host ~	Set password for private ftp.
Desktops.OpenDoc "ftp://user@host"	Private ftp to user at host.
NetSystem.SetUser ftp:user at host ~	Set password for private ftp.
