I'm working with a braindead ISP that requires ftp usernames to have
an @ sign in it.

Using ftp, I can get in this way:

    > open
    > user address@hidden

Or using mozilla, I can get in this way

IE cannot figure it out.

Yeah!!! Stupid username syntax. They guy on the tech support hotline
actually tried to defend this naming convention.

Unfortunately, it breaks ange-ftp. Damn!!! Stupid ass ISP. They broke
my dired-like ftp interface.

Anyone know how to have ange-ftp get around this arcane username
