Public bug reported:

The classical file transfer client (ftp) package should default to
binary transfer mode.

It's not the 1990s anymore, and when large files are transferred such as
zips, rars, .7z, .exe, etc, you must specify that you want binary
transfer mode or else the downloads will be corrupted since it's trying
to download files in ASCII mode by default.

Everything will transfer byte for byte using binary mode, so what is the
purpose of ASCII?  Let's default to binary instead and force changing to
mode ASCII if anyone wants that... which most people won't.

** Affects: netkit-ftp (Ubuntu)
