There's a fair bit of support for this in dpkg-ftp_1.5.0 and
dpkg-ftp-x_1.5.0, currently in experimental.  It's still got a few
rough edges, but for everyone except those who pay by-the-minute for
their network it should be a significant improvement over

I'd love it if people were to try out 1.5.0 and submit bugs/patches
against it (Yann Dirson has already submitted quite a few excellent
suggestions, but I can always use more input).
