in the __init__ function, call getresp,

however, the getresp don't handle the 120 reply which indicate the request should be delay or 421 reply

in the rfc 959 page 50, there are all reply that may return

From RFC-959:

      If the server is unable to accept input right away, a
      120 "expected delay" reply should be sent immediately and a 220
      reply when ready.  The user will then know not to hang up if there
      is a delay.

Seems to make sense. Willing to provide a patch?
