   If being permissive about what one accepts means accepting this, should
   I make my implementation ignore the second two digits of positive
   responses to simple model commands? I can't see taking too and 250 and
   no other 2xy's.

That's the way my IBM PC FTP does it. The command state machine is
just driven by the first digit. The other two digits can be used to
get more information, but unless I've missed something somewhere,
you can safely ignore them in deciding whether or not a command
succeeded, or what to do next.
