This isn't a bug, although there was a typo in part of the documentation
that I just fixed.  parseFTPEntry() either can parse an entry or cannot
parse an entry.  If the entry cannot be parsed, the method returns null.
This is by design, not by accident.  In your MVS parser, if PANELS by itself
is a valid listing, then you are free not to return null and include an
FTPFile with partial information.  However, this is not appropriate for
DefaultFTPFileListParser, which parses Unix style entries.

However, you are encouraged to submit your MVS file listing parser as a
patch that can be included in a future release.  The FTP package will likely
be moving to a more easily extended listing parser class structure (see
proposal/ftp2 in the source tree) and we'd like to support as many
listing formats as possible.
