I not sure what you mean by 'keep it client-side'.

You re sending the FTP LIST command to a server,
so why not send a request to a CGI script that returns directory info  
by querying the operating system (such as Linux)

It is probably faster and includes the info you are accustomed to on  
the desktop.

If you design your script correctly, you could even to a directory  
walk (drill down) in one server call, returning full path info for  
each file.
