Seems to me that there is a general set of parser rules
which would support:

A) curl -T file1 -T file2 ftp://site.com/
B) curl -T file1 ftp://site1.com/ -T file2 ftp://site2.com/
C) curl -T {file1,file2} ftp://site.com/ -T {file3,file4} \
            ftp://site2.com/
and even

D) curl -T files(s) site1 site2 site3 \
         -T file(s) -T file(s) siteA siteB

Option D would allow one to transfer sets of files to
multiple sites.

Parse rules:

1. Add any -T files to the upload files list.

2. When a URL is encountered, designate the upload files
   list to be transfered to that target site. Mulitple
   URLs will simply get the same upload list.

3. When a -T is encountered after a URL, clear the upload files
   list so we can start over. (Or do it explicitly with
   -T "" to allow the files list to grow.)

Error recovery could be a pain with long lists. Perhaps a way
out of that would be to have an option to have curl write an
error recovery file which would simply be a command line to
transfer any untransfered files and/or one to transfer any
untransfered files besides the current failing transfer.

Cheers!
Rich
