      Description

      Hello Mario,

      We at JetBrains are implementing support for (S)FTP sync in our IDEs using Commons VFS. When looking at the performance, we noticed that FTP provider is somewhat not perfect: see my discussion with Ralph.

      So the question is: why FtpClientWrapper changes the current directory to issue 'LIST' command and restoring it back afterwards instead of issuing single 'LIST <relpath>'?

      Subversion says it was you who introduced this behavior far back in 2008. Hope you remember those times and reason why you did this.

      Thanks a lot in advance,

      Kirill Safonov
