[Bug-wget] --remote-encoding and --local-encoding seem to have no effect

Subject: [Bug-wget] --remote-encoding and --local-encoding seem to have no effect for FTP transfer

I am using wget to perform a daily backup of my website hosted remotely. This 
is done using FTP.

The names of some folders contain accented characters, and despite the fact 
that I do have wget 1.12 with NDI support enabled, I always get corrupt file 
names on my local copy. The OS is Ubuntu 9.10, here is a sample of the wget 
output :
--2009-12-23 04:11:22-- 
=> «xxx.net/Hangzhou, ao\373t 2006/DSC_3983 copy.jpg»

regardelss of the values I use for --local-encoding or --remote-encoding, this 
does not seem to have any effect : the local file names are corrupt the exact 
same way. Using options like --restrict-file-names does seem to have some 
effect (but does not solve my problem)

For what it is worth, I had a quick look at the code and it seemd that ftp.c 
does not have any reference to any of those options, while it seems there is 
for http.c. Maybe this is not implemented in FTP?

Does anybody have a suggestion?

Thank you.
