Password for proxy authentication

I use proxy authentication with filezilla, it works well but
I have to enter my password in the configuration settings.

The feature that I want to have, is a pop-up asking the
password for the proxy authentication when the
password field in the proxy settings is empty.

Why do I ask for this new feature ?

In my network environnement the users have to change
their proxy password every two months for security
reasons. When they change it they always forget to
change it in Filezilla and lock their account.

My company uses a dynamic authentication where the proxy
password changes (every minute, using RSA SecurID).
Filezilla will not work as it cannot store the passcode and
it will not prompt for it, if the password field in the
proxy configuration is blank. Adding the capability of
prompting for the proxy password would allow more people to
use filezilla at medium/large companies that have
implemented ftp proxy/firewalls.

It is especially necessary when the password of the proxy
changes very often (several times an hour)
