It'd be good to have something for the ftp MLSD command. I think it's only rfc draft yet but various servers implement it (eg. proftpd). I don't know whether ls() style lines or nlst() data connection would be better. Perhaps both. There's a little parse could be done on the lines, splitting into "facts" and filename, but leave that for future thought. I wondered if flavours of quot() could be offered for arbitrary data or listing commands. Maybe as simple as _data_cmd() and _list_cmd() exposed as something like quot_data() or quot_list(). If wanted to wait for MLSD to reach an rfc then they could suit in the interim.
