Map a FTP-site to a drive letter

Description

I would like to be able to map a ftp-drive to a drive letter (e.g. h:) so I
can edit files on a FTP-server directly without manually having to
download file, edit file, upload file.

In this way my favorite
FTP-sites will also be directly accessible to me from various
programs.

See also http://in.deerfield.com/ for a
commercial program that does just that.

I daubt that this feature will ever come for FileZilla,
yet, it's too difficult for me. If I'm right, I would have
to write device drivers or system services for each windows
version individually and don't forget the problems with ftp-
mapped drives, there's a high chance of data loss or
connection problems.

OK - I knew it was a long shot. Anyway, the most important advantage with a
mapped ftp-site is that you are able to edit files on a ftp-site directly.

Please
consider that request.

Well, editing files on the server always consists of three
steps: Downloading the file, editing the file and uploading
the file, so you aren't able to edit the files directly.

The idea is that the downloading and uploading is handled automatically.
E.g. you press edit file, the file is downloaded to a temp-dir, the relevant
editor is opening the temp-file and FileZilla is monitoring the temp-file
for changes - when changes are made the temp-file will automatically be
uploaded.
