I didn't know about urlread and urlwrite in matlab. The download function is 
already quite similar
to urlwrite. I will make the interfaces compatible and try to match the coding 
style of octave.

libcurl allows to send "raw" ftp commands but it is not generic nor a complete 
FTP library
(according to http://curl.haxx.se/mail/lib-2003-01/0061.html). Therefore I'm 
not sure if libcurl is
the best way to implement matlab's ftp functions.
