This is because there is no way of getting 'last-modified' data
from a ftp site easily/uniformly. you could go one directory lower down
and then say 'ls -ld directory', but it may or may not work...

There is not really any way of doing this properly - you can try
some kind of refresh-rate for ftp where you cache anything
that ends with a '/' for a short period of time...

This MIGHT do the trick - I am not sure if we use perl-type
regexes or what... or if we have to escape the '/' with '\/'... but
since the default conf uses '//' without problems this should
work fine...

refresh_pattern ^ftp://.+/$ 0 0% 0

ie anything that starts with 'ftp' and ends with '/' isn't cached
at all
