Unfortunately, it seems that there are difficulties of using FTPClient.abort()
method . Also, it is really not clear how the abort() method should be
called/used at all - if from another thread (as I would expect) then there is a problem with
thread-safety: FTPClient itself is not thread-safe so it means that some
custom lock/monitor must be used; but this lock will prevent calling abort() on
the FTPClient while it is downloading/uploading file since file upload/download
itself is blocking...
If I'm wrong and the abort() method works then an example in Javadoc would be more than welcome.
