I'm not sure if it is worth the effort at this time. With the assumption
that the date field contains 3 elements we can already establish where
the file name starts.

Afaict there are no practical cases where vfs_parse_filedate() needs to
parse dates with 4 elements. If there were we either have to add an
option to vfs_parse_filedate() to distinguish between 3 or 4 element
dates or we should write an extra function vfs_parse_filedate4().

No need to add the extra overhead of an extra command. Also isn't NLST
an FTP specific command? The function is called vfs_parse_filedate() not
ftp_parse_filedate() as it is supposed to be usable by other vfses as
