Typo above, -l should be -L.

Also, it turns out this doesn't work beyond getting logged in without also 
specifying a specific range of "passive ports" for the ftp server to use and 
forwarding those through ssh as well.

So as others have said, you're probably better off using sftp and/or scp, or 
setting up a true VPN if you're tied to traditional FTP for some reason.
