I am trying to fetch files from an HTTP server that is misconfigured.  It
returns 400 Bad Request if the browser name doesn't have start with
"Mozilla".  ftp identifies itself, sensibly, as "NetBSD-ftp/....".

Is there any way to make ftp lie and call itself something like "Mozilla/4.0
(compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)"?
