Good question.  Probably not a huge amount.  The FTPFileListingProtocol
could probably be taught to write as well as read; and perhaps the
opening and connecting of data connections could be shared.  The data
connections, conceptually at least, are symmetrical.  And I intend to
implement file uploading in the client soon, so data really will flow
both ways.

As for the rest of it, probably not much.  But I'd like to at least try
to see what can be done before trying to build on it much further, when
it will be even harder to do.
