This is very impressive.  Even for bqt@, this is very impressive.

I'm curious: why wouldn't it?  Do the FTP client and server recognize
one another, or is it more "will not transport cleanly to a system not
implementing $OBSCURE_FTP_FEATURE", or what?

I won't find it useful personally, at least not in the near future; I'm
not running RSX.  And I wouldn't call it amusing.  I'd call it other
things, such as "impressive" or "awesome".  I'm tempted to pick up the
code just to read it over, as I'm sure there's a lot I could learn from
it, but I doubt I'll have the leisure to indulge that inclination
anytime soon. :-(
