It appears that ftp:// URLs opened by urllib2 don't get any content-type 
information.  I'll fix this in the next release.  In the meantime, if you 
change this line:

line 165, in process_url
     if 'html' not in f.headers['content-type'].lower():

to read instead:

     if 'html' not in f.headers.get('content-type', '').lower():

that should get you out of trouble till then.  Thanks.
