  | Some FTP servers.  MDTM never made it into the standard, afaik.  

Actually, it has now.   The RFC that includes it is not yet published,
the RFC editor is currently working on it (so there's no RFC number yet).

Of course, this, by itself, doesn't get MDTM supported in more FTP

But which don't support it?   I don't think I've encountered such a
thing (maybe some mainframe versions don't, but are there any of those
left running) ?
