Wether to pass transfer mode to proxy.
If the value is set to 1 (one), it tells libcurl to set the transfer mode (binary or ASCII) for FTP transfers done via an HTTP proxy, by appending ;type=a or ;type=i to the URL. Without this setting, or it being set to 0 (zero, the default), CURL.SetOptionTransferText has no effect when doing FTP via a proxy. Beware that not all proxies support this feature.
