 My use case is that from a custom shell I want to copy files to/from an FTP 
server.  FTPFS is fine as such, except that it is awkward to compose a 
string to specify server, username and password, which is then parsed again 
by the ftpfs.

 The ftplib that Leon pointed out is in that sense slightly easier to use 
than ftpfs, so I'm using that now.
