I do not know it and i did not know it. This should make your proposal more
accettable, also if is left to the OS. Sometimes FTP is used as an interface
for database which are not true file system.

I think that rebol and rebol/ are different object. I only admit that a query
on an object named "rebol" can return dir object info, if the rebol file does
FTP query is implemented in this way by rebol:
get info for the file "rebol"
get info for the dir "rebol/"
