Exactly, I was talking about the RFC that supersedes that
particular RFC.

0959 File Transfer Protocol. J. Postel, J. Reynolds. October 1985.
    (Format: TXT=147316 bytes) (Obsoletes RFC0765) (Updated by  
    RFC2640, RFC2773, RFC3659) (Also STD0009) (Status: STANDARD)

There is a 3.4.3 in RFC 959 which discusses a "COMPRESSED MODE", which  
might look superficially like encryption to the untrained eye.  
However, it appears that most modern FTP clients (and many FTP  
servers, in fact) don't support it. Also, it's not encrypted.
