Most of our testing is oriented on well-behaved servers. We should have a series of tests, both "white"- and "black"-box, that send abnormal data of various kinds to wget, in an effort to trick it. Lines with insufficient components (such as the "220 " lines that were causing problems with the ftp_syst function in the past), syntactically invalid stuff, craftily-placed NUL characters, hugely long lines, etc ... all of these things could be tested.
