  The mod_proxy module proxy_ftp.c has an undocumented 'feature':
  when the URL is suffixed by ';type=a', then an ASCII transfer is enforced.

  +<h2><a name="type">How can I force an FTP ASCII download of File <EM>xxx</EM>?</a></h2>
  +In the rare situation where you must download a specific file using the FTP
  +<STRONG>ASCII</STRONG> transfer method (while the default transfer is in
  +<STRONG>binary</STRONG> mode), you can override mod_proxy's default by
  +suffixing the request with <SAMP>;type=a</SAMP> to force an ASCII transfer.<p>
