It's not directly supported just yet (assuming you're working with 1.1.1),
but if you upload a file to a nonexistent FTP directory, the directory is
created for you, so you can use that as a workaround:

  -- create an empty file in the nonexistent directory:
  put empty into URL ""
  -- this creates the directory and the file in it. Now delete the
  -- unwanted empty file to leave just the new directory:
  delete URL ""
