why not possible? in worst case just reopen the connection if it fails
(now it prints error message but does not work any more after ctrl+c)

no (at least for me)

It's probably not important for most people, but for example it is for me.
I have to search few TB ftp and nfs sites often, and doing it in the lslR.gz
file should be way faster, but since mc 'imports' lslR so slow it's not
much faster than searching over the network...
I don't ask you to do it, i'll do it, just don't refuse the patch :)
(anyway i can use it even if refused...)
