filezilla should use different file name while uploads are in progress

problem: If I upload index.html or any other file onto my homepage then the file will not be accessible during the upload. When my internet connection tends to become slow that is a real problem because my whole site (www.elstel.org) will be down during the upload.
solution: upload the file under different name i.e. index.html.new and then, after the upload has succeeded, rename that file into index.html
rationale: Last time my internet connection was stalled and the connection to my server (web4.dotplex.de) got lost during the upload. Even worse I did not succeed to reconnect for hours because the connection was somehow delayed (100-300ms ping RTT). The result was that my site had been down for hours. very annoying and quite harmful!
conclusion: As long as this bug does not become resolved quikly the only way would be to strongly disrecommend the usage of filezilla at least for critical uploads.
