I could very well imagine a system where you add FTP commands to a linked list
and then libcurl ignores those commands. It would also resemble how
header-removal is done for HTTP using CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER.
What would you say about that? Anyone else?
Of course, most of the FTP commands libcurl use are vital for its success so
ignoring a random command won't be a good idea. The SIZE command however is
one of those that _can_ be skipped without totally ruining things.
