Then how do you explain the security offered by section 3.4.3 of 
RFC959? Or did you just skip over that...

      3.4.3.  COMPRESSED MODE

         There are three kinds of information to be sent:  regular data,
         sent in a byte string; compressed data, consisting of
         replications or filler; and control information, sent in a
         two-byte escape sequence.  If n>0 bytes (up to 127) of regular
         data are sent, these n bytes are preceded by a byte with the
         left-most bit set to 0 and the right-most 7 bits containing the
         number n.

If you think run-length-encoding compression is security, you're even less
clued than I thought.
