Synopsis: Proxied ftp (re)fetch displays size wrongly

The ftp(1) documentation specifies that -R doesn't work with proxied
transfers, although the program doesn't enforce this restriction at this time.

There's at least two solutions available:
* Enforce the restriction that -R doesn't work with (HTTP) proxies.
* Switch to using HTTP/1.1 (from HTTP/1.0) for proxied transfers which
  should allow us to implement -R for these.

If the latter isn't viable, the former will have to be done.
