nixguix: Add support for downloads over FTP
Open, NormalPublic

Description

python-requests does not support download via FTP by default, so this causes errors like this one: https://sentry.softwareheritage.org/share/issue/96e6c7c0442e4343919d510c9a0fc977/

This could possibly be done using https://pypi.org/project/requests-ftp/

Hey @vlorentz, can you please give me some hints for this and an example URL for testing the code?

Run the nixguix loader with url=https://guix.gnu.org/sources.json, you'll get a bunch of ftp-related errors. eg. this one https://sentry.softwareheritage.org/share/issue/7dc92745d96442d482a493c64b6eae91/
