Indicate that passive FTP (and other options) should be used when writing to a FTP location
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: VFS-178
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VFS-178
             Project: Commons VFS
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: Nightly Builds
            Reporter: Asankha C. Perera


I am trying to use VFS to connect to a FTP file, but the problem is that I cannot specify
that PASSIVE mode should be used. I think we could use the format below to specify for example:
?passive=true etc.

ftp://myusername:mypassword@somehost/pub/downloads/somefile.tgz?option=value

Yes, for sure, this could make it too - I thought about it too. Even if
I am still not that happy with this query-string parsing/repacking stuff
I'd commit it if someone contributes a patch.
