The LIST command will open the data connection for transmitting the file 
listing. So, the client sending the LIST request will expect back a 
response saying that the data connection has been opened or will open it 
itself (depending on active or passive mode). So, just returning the 
response as done above would not work. Instead you will have to open a 
data connection and send your listing there, while sending status 
replies on the control socket. Have a look at our implementation of the 
LIST command for clues on how to do this:
