I mean exactly this. But this is only the first step. The base class is 
still huge and complicated, just like it was in 2.x.y. To make it clear, 
the protocol-specific subclasses could be derived also from the 
subclasses I mentioned:

PurpleXferClass <- PurpleFDXferClass <- YahooXferClass (an example).
