from the api documentation:

  This implements RFC 959, with the following exceptions:
   * STAT, HELP, SITE, SMNT, and ACCT commands are not supported.
   * the TYPE command does not allow alternatives to the default bytesize
     (Non-print), and local bytesize is not supported.

it's been tested using active/passive mode and MODE STREAM. i have been
unable thus far to locate a free ftp server that supports modes BLOCK and
COMPRESSED to test these.

it doesn't support any extensions; contributions would be most welcome,
subject to all the legal whatnot.

btw, by “client” i mean a client connection object, not a user-agent.
