Clearly I'm the confused person here. You are right, I was wrong. Sorry!

But I would prefer to be right here, and we do ignore the size when we list
directories and I think we should do that for ASCII transfers too since we
don't know when to sound the alarm or not.

I think we should simply skip the size checks if we do ascii transfers.

Or am thinking wrong again?
