FTPS: Hook to customize _openDataConnection_ SSLSocket before startHandshake() is called

                 Key: NET-426
             Project: Commons Net
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: FTP
    Affects Versions: 3.0.1
            Reporter: Ketan
            Priority: Critical

Currently in FTPSClient class, there is protected _openDataConnection_ method, which create
SSLSocket for data connection.  But there is no hook to customize the SSLSocket before startHandshake
is called.  

I need to know the remote host ip and port, which i can get for socket, and do custom setup
to try to reuse SSL sessions from control connection socket.  Since the socket factory uses
createSocket() method, I can't just use custom socket factory since I don't know the host
and port.  I can't just override the _openDataConnection_() method in my class since that
will call the startHandshake().  

So it would be nice if you can provide hook, much like _connectAction_(), but for data connection
before handshake is started.  You can pass the new data socket as argument to this hook method
so one can get remote host and port information.
