For the life of me, I can't figure out why there is no call back in 
Net::FTP's get and put functions.

I created a subclass of Net::FTP, copied over the get and put 
functions and added a callback argument and a single line:

&{$cb}($buf,$len) if ref $cb eq 'CODE';

to both functions and it works great.

I will send this off to the author as soon as I get a chance.
