Some ftp clients implement REGET command
to resume downloading file after connection
has been aborted. People won't be happy
to download 29Mb out of 30Mb file and
start all over if connection broke at that moment.

Most common syntax is REGET <remote file name>,
some ftp clients allows REGET <remote file name>
<local file name> form.

This command send ftp protocol RESTore <size>
sequence where size is size of already downloaded
part of file, and after that RETRieve <remove file name>
to initiate transfer.

Some ftp servers don't implement RESTore <size>
command, so client will get error code and will
have to restart downloading from very beginng
even if that client support reget.
