This turned up in todays Freshmeat feed

BarracudaDrive is a secure, multi-user, Web-based file manager which
eliminates the need for FTP access. BarracudaDrive allows the user to
upload, download, and manage files securely on a home computer from
anywhere in the world. BarracudaDrive also bypasses firewalls and
proxies since the communication protocol is HTTPS. The communication is
protected by using SSL, so no one can eavesdrop on your file transfer.
