Re: [bug-inetutils] ftp -p(assive) compatibility

   All the other ftp programs I've seen support -p to mean switch into
   passive mode by default.  This is very useful, since so many places
   (such as fencepost :() are configured to only work with passive

   Printing a command line prompt when not on a tty seems very obscure
   by comparison.  How about leaving that as --prompt only, and
   changing -p (aka --passive, I suppose) to do the passive mode

There you go, just for you. :-)

        New options --active and --passive.

        * ftp/main.c (OPT_PROMPT): New enum.
        (argp_options) <prompt>: Removed short option (-p).  <active>: New
        option; uses -A as short option.  <passive>: New option; uses -p
        as short option.
        (parse_opt): Handle --active and --passive, updated --prompt
        (main) <passivemode>: Set initial value before argument parsing.
