Max Files per Session + Max Files per Day

Some FTP servers (eg ftp.worldofspectrum.org) limit the number of transfers using file counts instead of the number of bytes transfered. These sites often impose a file limit per day.
Would it be possible to have some settings that echo these limits.
Lets say we have a server that limits the number of files per ftp session to 200 and the number of files per day to 2000.
The FTP client queues up several folders worth of transfers totalling 2500 files.
FileZilla counts each transfer until the max files per session (as defined in site settings, 200 in this example) is reached. FileZilla then suspends the queue, disconnects from the remote server, waits a few seconds then reconnects (starting a new session) and resumes the queue. This process repeats (10 times in this example) until the number of files per day limit (also defined in site settings, 2000 in this example) is reached. Filezilla then suspends the queue, storing the remaining 500 queued entries, and refusing reconnection to the server for 24 hours.
