I don't know about tftp, but telnet will be handy. Some cheap web hosts only
allow telnet access, and as Claudio said it is a very handy debugging tool.
Is there a reason to exclude it?

What about nsftp too? :)

I use lynx, but I havent tried the rest. It's nice to have a web browser
wherever you go :)
