we updated the FTP HASH, RANG, and LOCK drafts, while the authors of
HOST have updated their (hopefully final, get any comments or reviews
in ASAP) draft.

we are mostly interested in finishing up HASH & RANG, but also feel
free to comment on LOCK. fancy diffs are available. HASH, RANG, & LOCK
changes are all editorial or just updating the draft.

HASH FTP command to be used by clients to request cryptographic hashes of files.

RANG command to be used by clients to designate a start and end point
to permit restarts and repairs of interrupted data transfers in STREAM

LOCK command to be used by clients to request the server to use the
control connection for data transfers, using a single port instead of

also, HOST has been updated:

FTP command that provides a mechanism for FTP clients and servers to
identify individual virtual hosts on an FTP server.
