Pass a long. This option tells curl to set the transfer mode (binary or
ASCII) for FTP transfers done via an HTTP proxy, by appending ;type=a or
;type=i to the URL. Without this setting (the default),
CURLOPT_TRANSFERTEXT has no effect when doing FTP via a proxy. Beware
that not all proxies support this feature."

If you're fine with the above (and comes with an idea to do it
automatically), I can write the patch for that.
