Subject: URL for ftp

folks
   I'm not sure this is an appropriate question for your group; if not 
kindly steer me in the proper direction.  Does the standard for an ftp 
url leave any room for suppliing the 'ACCT' parameter in a manner similar 
to the 'USER' and 'PASS'?  As I read them, they state that a host prompt 
for password will be passed on to the user; however a host prompt for 
acct is not mentioned, and does not appear to be recognized.  Any 
comments would be greatly appreciated.
