support syn.get of external FTP links in py client?

Description

I've created synapse entities for the new GRCh38 version of the human genome and have pointed them to the FTP download link at Ensembl. It would sure be nice if I could "syn.get" them from the python client.

See https://www.synapse.org/#!Synapse:syn2572799 for an example.
