Urgent Dialog Box connection timesout

Description

I like FileZilla in the background, but I need
an "Urgent Message" dialog box to pop-up to the front,
when the connection timesout, or file/que download
finishes.

Timeouts need a complete fix (see other's
recommendations), but an optional dialog box would
reduce my surprise that I had not noticed timeouts.

0) Dialog that pops up to front of current app on top.
1) Make ONLY optional! (but useful e.g., 650Mb ISO
downloads, select "urgent message" dailog box)
2) If the FTP clears status and reconnects after a
e.g., 30 second wait, clear the dialog box, to avoid
thousands of boxes.
3) Don't spawn a new dialog box each time a problem
occurs, 1000 dialog boxes is a hassle. Create one, and
update it if need be. e.g., "Connection timeout: 7th
timeout on 3:30:23s PM, Tuesday, April 23, 2002."

and best yet, "Download complete: 7:32:41s PM,
Tuesday, April 23, 2002"
