FTPS was never wide-spread and FTP is going to be obsoleted by the "encrypt 
everything" movement. The two main FTP sites I used (Debian archives + 
downloads from gnu.org) both offer HTTPS since a while.

Of course you will always see single persons using FTP for whatever reason. But 
hey, there is wget for (recursive) FTP downloads.

Before supporting FTP I would rather check files and documentation of any 
projects (you like/use) for non-HTTPS URLs and make up a MR/PR to fix it.
