ftpparse is the hard one, really. The current version doesn't seem to be
GPL-compatible (in fact the license doesn't really grant any permission
except for commercial).
ftpcopy has a public domain rewrite of this, but it has changed a few
/* differences between Bernsteins and this version:
 * a) use tai, not time_t.
 * b) included format flag.
 * c) size is now an uint64 (was signed long).
 * d) added FTPPARSE_MTIME_REMOTESECOND: time zone is unknown, seconds known
 * e) much more formats understood.
 * f) much more picky about some details.
 * g) there's a function to parse MLSX.
Using this would seem to require pulling in a few extra files from the
ftpcopy package.

God Bless,
Multitudes, multitudes,
   in the valley of decision!
For the day of the LORD is near
   in the valley of decision.
