Yes, that's correct. But it is way too easy for malicious people to kill a
Zope-Server that has FTP enabled. They just connect in regular intervals -
say 5 seconds - and your service won't be online anymore.
That is why I disabled FTP support until I am sure that it will work
smoothly in a future version.
I just checked the bug reports again and saw the following on
 ZServer Bug: Ftp Active mode through firewall

Too bad that this does not seem to be a real problem for the developers.
The bug is still alive (Version 2.2.2), and I am too dumb to do "real"
programming in Python to fix it :-(
