Changing this it would break the FTP protocol, and most clients would not
be able to connect.

How unnatural? Would it be possible to do it using another protocol/telnet
say between the client and the delegate server, and then ftp from the
delegate server outwards?

Yes. I noticed that. 
The patch fixes it beautifully :-)
