Thanks for your advice.

I'm an XCFE chap, and, just like GNOME and KDE's file managers, I have 
just discovered that

UbuntuStudio (which runs XFCE 4.10) "Connect to Server" will open a FTP 
site (ftp://XXXXXX) as a read-only sort of thing in one's web-browser,
or as a folder on the desktop which is read/write enabled.

which, quite frankly, makes me feel bloody silly getting all worked up 
about FileZilla and whatnot.
