Re: bin/45116 (/usr/bin/ftp fails to parse Content-Range header)

Synopsis: /usr/bin/ftp fails to parse Content-Range header

I brought this up with the chair of the IETF HTTPbis WG - that group
is chartered to revise & clarify HTTP 2616 (HTTP 1.1).
It was confirmed that the behaviour of ftp is correct, and the foreign
web server is incorrect.  I.e, ftp didn't ask for a Range, so it shouldn't
be getting a Content-Range response (especially without a 206 response).

Whilst the http handling in ftp could be improved, in this case I
don't believe that it has faulty behaviour.
