the only thing I think ncftp need is the possibility to resume previous downloads.
See also lftp (freshmeat.net/projects...). According to my taste (but of course not necessarily yours) it is nicer to use than ncftp, but for some reason not as well known. The feature set is basically identical.

I miss the command line options too.
The interface was changed because they decided to remove the ncurses support, so people without ncurses can still compile ncftp. But, they still provide the old ncurses-based bookmark editor as a seperate program (ncftpbookmarks), and if you type "make install", ncftp will run the old bookmark editor each time you type "bookmarks" or "open".
Re: NCFTP 3.0
Well, not only is background useful for things other than warez, NcFTP is fully capable of bgput and bgget.
I'm not very happy with 3.0, myself. The last version was perfect, but the new one blows. The bookmarking was less of a PITA, the interface was nicer, command line options were available, etc...
