The command line FTP is sooooo '90s.  ;-)

I did get a suggestion from Tomasz to use gFTP as well.

I see under my package manager that there's a j-ftp as well as
kftpgrabber and kuftp, which are KDe frontends, but I remember that in
its day Kbear wasn't all that stable, so I'll use a Gnome app if it's
better (after all I use Evolution, so I'm obviously not fanatical in my
preference for KDE. ;-)

Thanks for all help so far.
