Add option to force "LIST -a" instead of "MLSD"

we have the issue that not all directory content on our ftp server is listed. Hidden Dot-Files are not shown and diretorys with hidden files can not be deleted. We already activated the "Show hidden files" option.

We observed that FileUilla uses the "MLSD" command to retrieve the directory content. But other clients, like WinSCP use the "LIST -a" command.

Can you add an option to force "LIST -a" instead of "MLSD"?

LIST -a is not part of the FTP specifications. The FTP specifications do not offer any way to list "hidden" files, hence the server must not hide files. In other words, this needs to be fixed server-side.
