Why do I get the feeling I write this very frequently? curl speak SSL on the
control connection only.

Allow me to quote a paragraph from the docs/TODO in the curl release archive:

 * Add FTPS support with SSL for the data connection too. This should be made
   according to the specs written in draft-murray-auth-ftp-ssl-12.txt,
   "Securing FTP with TLS", valid until 28th February, 2004.

We welcome patches and help.
