But how would you know, that you are in an directory where you have the 
permission to do the list command, or at least there are files within?
Depending on the host configuration and the url the user passed to 
FTPClient, the directory might be secured or empty.

If you dont like to use the UnixFTPEntryParser directly (what i can 
unsterstand) , what do you think about an NTUnixFTPEntryParser (which is 
a copy) and use this instead. So changes in UnixFTPEntryParser might not 
break the NT Parser - if this is what you are afraid.

I think this is most invasive as it does not
a) rely on any configuration of the host
b) involve any additional step in the communication between FTPClient 
and the Parser
c) need to change any interface/implemenation beside the current
