Post subject: New feature request: automatic directory selection

I have just downloaded FZ and I have to say that is quite nice.
I have a suggestion for a new feature, that is quite simple to develop and useful for all those use tools such as Adobe Dreamweaver.
When I upload a file to a server I have to make myself sure that in the "remote files" panel must be selected the same correpondent directory where the file is destined to, or I will put the file in the wrong place.
This is quite annoying because it can be necessary to edit files that are located in different directories, for several reasons.
For instance it could be needed to edit a functions file, while a CSS together with the file that uses both.
If I have three branches I have to seselct each time the different remote directory where I have to put each file, one at a time.
With a "parallel directory" feature this couldn't be required, because each file belongs to a directory, both local and remote.
This is a feature that is missing on the various FTP clients I have seen and used, and I think it is quite useful for professionals.

I would greatly appreciate a "parallel directory" mode.
Changing directory in the local view would change it in the server view and vice-versa.
To be really complete, this mode could include the feature "clicking on a column to sort the files in a view sorts it in the other view too" and "scrolling up and down in one view scrolls the other view too".
