Overwrite options -> Where file size is larger

One thing I've seen in other FTP clients is the option
to overwrite where the filesize is smaller or larger.
This is useful in conjunction with the option to
download based on "last updated" date.
Sometimes file transfers will break and the client's
error detection will fail. Having the option to
overwrite based on filesize is also good when files on
the client have been changed, but you still want to
overwrite them with files on the host side.
Sometime, files on the host will have a newer "last
updated" date than on the client, without having
actually been changed (they were only touched), and
therefore overwriting based on date causes a lot of
unnecessary transferring and overwriting.

It's very important: when uploading large sites it's very difficult
to check which files fail. Overwriting smaller files should be
very useful!
