Per-site firewall (SOCKS) settings

Description

A single proxy/SOCKS setting is fine for if I am using it to
connect to servers on the Internet, but not so for use
inside complex network environments.

Per site proxy settings are essential for use in any larger
corporation, or supporting multi-client environments. For
example, I work for an outsourcing company and to
connect to client A, I need to use SOCKS server a, and
to connect to client B, I need to use SOCKS server b,
and so on, as we have a SOCKS server that acts as a
gateway to every client network. In order to use
FileZilla for this, every time I connect to a different site
I have to go to the settings and manually change the
firewall options.

Note: This would be consistent with how products such
as PuTTY work. Currently I connect to the same
servers via SSH using PuTTY, and for each connection I
define in PuTTY, I can set the SOCKS server (and
SOCKS userid/password).

In summary - please consider adding this, as the client is
great other than this issue. (I read that the site
manager was getting a make-over at some stage so
maybe this could be part of that?)
