Per #3796626, CF11 Update 3 is adding a new attribute to <cfftp> for specifying the system type of an FTP server: <cfftp parserkey="windows|unix"

Can it please be renamed to <cfftp systemtype="windows|unix" b/c?  In the future, <cfftp> may need to know the system type for other internal purposes (other than the current purpose, which is to parse the listdir result from FTP servers that don't support the SYST command).  So the attribute name shouldn't be so specific to its current purpose.

It should be renamed to "systemtype", b/c that's what it's actually asking for: the "system type".
