ftp protocol deficient

The script writers could really use a close command with maybe a -f and -p 
option to fsync stuff to disk and preserve file attributes and 
permissions.  All it would do would be to close an open connection but not 
exit ftp.  That way one could open up another site and do some commands on 
it before ending the script.  I found this out since I have a file I like 
to keep backed up to two external locations and with a close command, I 
could open up the second site and update that file on that second site 
with one run of the script before quitting out of the script and returning 
to the command prompt.
