[bug-inetutils] already connected when closed

One minor niglet in ftp that has always caught me is that you can't
reopen a closed connection without an explicit close first.  For

$ ftp ftp.gnu.org
# wait a few minutes, so the connection gets closed.
ftp> open ftp.gnu.org
Already connected to ftp.gnu.org, use close first.

Well, I knew that, that's why I wanted to reopen :).  If the connection
is already closed, is there any harm in just going forward?

I realize it's not exactly trivial, since it means `open' has to somehow
get the state of the connection before issuing the message, but
hopefully that's ultimately feasible?

Just a suggestion ...
