   It often runs over telnet - I use ProFTPd which implements telnet
without an option to turn it off. The problem is that I cannot use
ftplib.py to grab files from my own server :( Most Unix servers implement
telnet, but 7-bit ASCII-only filenames hide the fact.
   Making ftplib.py more RFC-compliant with backward compatibility is a
good thing, in my opinion.

           Programmers don't die, they just GOSUB without RETURN.
