Windows 95, 98, ME, 2K all include FTP clients that don't support these.  I'd
guess that XP won't support it either.  Not to mention OS/2 and MacOS.  Based
how many people are still running w95, and the serialization in XP that's
to make new sales of it very slow, I think we will be seeing quite a lot of
mode FTP clients for a long time.  Oh and I forgot all the currently shipping
browsers too.
