security level of data connection (PROT C/P)

When using FTP with TLS/SSL (explicit) FileZilla uses
encryption for both the command and data connections

encryption for secure password transfers on login and
the data then can be transfered unencrypted and
uncompressed (only sometimes data needs encryption).
This would give less load to ftp-servers when using
fast connection (like 100MBit and above).

It would be great to choose between 'PROT P' and 'PROT
C' in default settings and for each site in the
