properly? I dunno. According to what?

Squid does not support FTP uploads at all. You are correct that it
always assumes an ftp:// URL is a GET request.

To support this, we'll need an 'ftpput' program, which may not
be too difficult to write since it won't have to covert any
output to HTML/HTTP. Any volunteers?

You might be able to configure netscape to go directly for
FTP PUT's. Their proxy config language should do that I'd think.
