There's ncftpput:


It's GPLed.

There's also curl and libcurl:


And then there's lftp:


And naturally, there's the Perl Net::FTP module, which you can hack something 
with it.

If none of these work for you, then I am willing to be contracted to do it, 
for a good pay. I will optionally transfer ownership of the code to you and 
guarantee I'll maintain it into the future. Plus, it will be preferable if I 
release it to the public under the MIT X11 licence.

Note that I'm not going to work on it for free, because this project does not 
interest me. A lot of people try to interest me in important FOSS projects, 
and while I agree they are important, I follow my own interests. If I am to 
receive payment, then naturally, my priorities can change - I am a geek for 
hire after all.

If it's not in my E-mail it doesn't happen. And if my E-mail is saying
one thing, and everything else says something else - E-mail will conquer.
