[REBOL] Re: FTP scheme was Re: Reading empty directories via FTP error

I recall reading that the Netscape developer (pre-AOL days) responsible for
their browser FTP code was incredulous when it was decided that they would
recode their entire browser from scratch. He had written ugly code to
carefully manage 60 or so nonstandard variations of the protocol implemented
by FTP server software.
Reichart's company wrote a commercial/sharware FTP client a while back
(IIRC), so it must be possible to do a reasonably good implementation.
