there's still have problem with some special case for
the file name with multibyte like JIS or Big5,
is it possible to make the client and server side to
use Unicode for filename communication?

It seems like nobody noticed this? Then let me add more

There is one RFC - #2640 - regarding the internationalization
issue of FTP. It utilizes UTF-8 to transfer paths and
filenames, and both the server and client should be able to
translate UTF-8 from/to the encoding of filesystem. This
should be the definite solution to the Big5 characters with
slash in its sequence.

Currently I can only find a pair of Win32 application support
RFC2640: RaidenFTPD as server and SmartFTP as client.
Since FZ3 will be a cross-platform application, it would be a
good idea to implent RFC2640 as a major advantage among
current U*IX ftp clients. :)
