As some of you might be aware of, I'm implementing FTPS support (FTP over 
SSL/TLS) on Wget.

So far it works well, but the relevant RFC (RFC 4217) recommends FTPS clients to use the "FEAT" 
command (http://pretty-rfc.herokuapp.com/RFC2389) to tell whether a given server supports FTPS or not. 
Although it's true that I can just try to start an SSL session with "AUTH TLS" and react 
accordingly if I get 500 (not recognized), I wonder why there's no "FEAT" command implemented in 
Wget. All the major FTP(S) clients out there use it in order to tell which features the server supports.

I've searched in the archives and haven't seen anything related. Is there any 
good reason for this?
