  FTP server implementation, the Unix variants seem to work well in
  practice, even for non-Unix servers.

  Nevertheless, it's recommended that you don't hardcode these values
  for remote paths, but use `FTPHost.path`_ as you would use
  ``os.path`` to write platform-independent Python code for local
  filesystems. Keep in mind that most, *but not all*, arguments of
  ``FTPHost`` methods refer to remote directories or files. For
  example, in `FTPHost.upload`_, the first argument is a local
  path and the second a remote path. Both of these should use their
  respective path separators.
