not that I know of - you want an FTP client that can keep track of the "cut"
request and link it to the "paste" request, and perform a move (hmm dont even
think that is available as FTP cmd... maybe i'm wrong)...a move would be a
download from original, delete, and upload to the new place.

Would DAV provide what you need? (ok, not an FTP server anymore...but if what
you are after is the functionality...)

just my $0.02
