Allow users to choose where sitemanager.xml is stored

Like a lot of users I need to sync filezilla across multiple computers, this often involves complex or time consuming procedures that don't always work reliably.

With this in mind please simply allow users to choose the location of sitemanager.xml in settings.

Sharing the same settings between multiple computers is explicitly _NOT_ a supported use-case. There simply is no reliable inter-computer file locking mechanism offered by the operating system, which is the bare necessity for sharing settings.

I was not asking you to handle the file locking, simply make this fundamental function possible for users.

If you're going to explicitly rule out synchronization then you've effectively declared yourself a dead project. I already need an FTP and Terminal client on my phone, I need an FTP client that can work cross platform and manage the sites I use regularly. This is a multi device world and you're clearly not prepared for that.

It's a shame, I've been a user since the earliest days.
