     Isn't this kind of limiting?  I routinely transfer files with
sizes that are seven or eight digits long.

} * 'ls' now uses NLST (unadorned listing), a la older ftp clients. 'dir'

     Hey, I finally got my name in lights (or, at least on a CVS
entry).  :-)  Which reminds me, I have to file a PR against
(I've been given a new area code).

} bug fixes:
} * return first line of reply in reply_string[] from getreply(), instead
}   of last line. This fixes [bin/741] (parsing of SYST), and also means 
}   that SIZE and MDTM messages will be parsed correctly if they're longer
}   than 1 line.
} * parse URL-style auto-ftps that have no filename correctly
}   (e.g, ftp://host, ftp://host/, ftp://host/dir/). pointed out by
}   Jaromir Dolecek <>
} * pass the correct size array in 2nd arg of utimes() when setting the
}   modification time
