gftp already supports this. Edit your ~/.gftp/gftprc file and look for the ext=
lines at the bottom of the file. There is a column to specify ascii or binary.
I never got around to putting this in the options dialog yet. Make sure you are
using 2.0.16, there is an ascii translation bug in some earlier versions.
