I disagree, but acknowledge that this is contentious.

Does Squid FTPGET honor the ;A and ;I modifiers specified in
RFC 1738?

If so, that would make it possible to force "I" mode in the case
that is creating trouble for us here in a reasonably clean fashion.

(I regard the "try to guess it" language in 1738 as a particularly
offensive example of standardizing things that work part of the time....
but have no better solution at the moment...)
