Block mode goes back to the RFC959 written over 40 years ago, before
the internet really existed and FTP was used by mainframe computers.  

I've never really come across it until you mentioned it, but a little
Googling suggests IIS FTP7 does actually support it, and it may be
beneficial for lots of small files avoiding lots of separate data
connections (particularly with SSL connection overhead). 

So perhaps it is a good idea to add to ICS, not easy and I certainly
won't have time for several months, too busy adding Jose stuff like JWK,
JWS, JWT, ACME and OAuth2, mostly for Let's Encrypt SSL certificates,
then OpenSSL 1.1.1 and TLS/1.3, never mind my own projects.
