Duplicate timestamp of downloaded files

The remote sites I've encountered are notoriously bad
at keeping their system clocks accurate. Although my
local Windows clock may be correct, I cannot use
the "Overwrite if newer" feature with the mismatch
between the remote's site clock and my local clock.

I propose adding an unix-like touch feature to the
code to synchronize the timestamp of the downloaded
file with that of the file on the remote ftp site. In
this way the files downloaded will use the timestamp
of the ftp site regardless of when they are
downloaded, and use of the "Overwrite if newer"
feature will be enhanced.

For the GNU licensed code of a touch for windows see:
and see the attached upload

Keep up the great work, FileZilla is the best!
