What kind of logic is this??

We've already established that 'pasv' is no more correct than 'PASV', so it not a bug.

If 10% of all ftp servers fail to follow specs, you want to prevent luasocket users access to them because of some principle?

If something as trivial as this, with no negative side effects, fixes an evidently existing issue, regardless of who created the issue in the first place,
why even argue about it?

luasocket is a tool, like most other libraries, just solve the issue and be done with it, you're engineers!..

'case this 'fixes' the bug which doesn't even exist. %-) it's like
'fixing' html/css for IE -- it then works but it then badly wrong and

so i think this can be 'fixed' in local user's version, but shouldn't
be fixed in LuaSocket distribution. maybe dox should mention that there
are some broken servers which might not work due to this problem,
nothing more. %-) the more times we 'fix' such bugs on the wrong side,
the more authors will ignore specs, IMO. "why i should obey the specs if
they just can 'fix' their clients?"
