Of course, despite that document's wild claims about greater RFC conformance
(in the first sentence), this behaviour is quite contrary to the principle of
"be liberal in what you accept", as espoused in section 1.2.2 of RFC 1122.
They knowingly broke compatibility with some ftp clients, to no advantage.
This is not RFC-compliance, and it's one of the many reasons so many people
have moved away from wu-ftpd this decade.
