It would be great if ftpfs could detect changed files on the mounted
ftp site.

Scenario:

You're in a text editor (ie. using
emacs), editing "changes.html" on a mounted ftp site. Normally, if
changes have happened to the file while you were editing it, emacs
would complain. Now it just writes the file, no questions
asked.

Also, some editors are able to detect changes on files
while working.

It's probably all about checking the timestamp
and maybe the file size.
