No, no, no!!!

DO NOT extend the meaning of the USER command or for that matter
that of the PASS command. They have very specific meanings.
Instead, create your own extension commands "XCPW" and "XGRP".
These can be specified via the "quote" command that is supposed
to be part of all FTP implementations. This is within the scope
of the standard. Please, be sensible - standards are there for a
reason, interoperability.
