Automatic subdirectory support

Description

I think a really killer feature would be to add a
Dreamweaver-like automatic subdirectory support.

Dreamweaver allows you to view the content under the
site root in a tree-view fashion. When you choose to
upload a file, it automatically uploads the file in
the corresponding directory in the remote site
directory hierarchy.

I'm telling this because I'm dealing mainly with
applications. I upload lots of asp, php and java files
but don't need Dreamweaver editing features. I'm
almost forced to use it because no other app I know
supports it. I think FileZilla offering that could be
a real killer app.

I second this suggestion; Dreamweaver's site manager has
that unique feature that streamlines a lot of constant file-
uploading that we go through during development and
maintenance of a website.

I'd like to call it "Folder Syncronization".

Currently CuteFTP PRO seemed to be the only FTP client that
supports this feature. I think this functionality would be
very beneficial.

There is a freeware folder syncronization tool "ViceVersa"
which works only on local or network mapped drives (see
http://www.tgrmn.com ). It also provides several different
modes of syncronization. An FTP client with similar
functionality is mostly desired.

I just found a duplicate of this request that exactly named
"folder syncronization" :)

This feature would really set filezilla apart. The way I
would imagine it would be implemented is that you would
"lock" a directory to a remote directory as your
syncronization root. At that point, the program can assume
that opening a local folder will automatically open the
remote folder in the same place. I waste most of my time
trying to get the local and remote lists on the same
directory so that I can issue the uploads.
