OK, I have dired-listing-switches set to "-altrF
--group-directories-first --block-size='1" and I use package
dired-quick-sort which injects "--sort=version" into the ls
args.  Both do not work with ftp, at least not with the ftp
server I use.

I tried to replace the only occurrence of dired-listing-switches
in ange-ftp.el with "-al" and ditto with dired-actual-switches
but had no luck.

Since I mostly use dired on local file systems I want to use
these customizations.  At the same time I do not know how to
unload the dired-quick-sort package and it's customizations to
emacs variables.  Also I found no pre-ange-ftp-hook where I could
uncustomize these variables.  Therefore I will use an mostly
uncustomized emacs invocation for interacting with the ftp server
to my webspace.

Thanks again to Michael for making ange-ftp work with ftp-ssl.

Ciao; Gregor
