Changing the GUI for handling priority

Filezilla is overall the best FTP client I used, but one feature is a bit awkward to use: the way the priority of the files in the queue is handled.
Using a separate attribute for priority is confusing. It's not always obvious which files are going to be processed first. For example, when you add files to the queue, they can get a higher priority than the ones already there, and the current download won't finish until the new added files are completed.
It's also cumbersome to chose a given priority, and then try to visually check if you got it right.
A much much better way to handle priority is that the first file on the queue is always processed first, and to add menu commands to move items up, down, top and bottom. It's simple, WISIWIG, and you just can't be wrong.
Thanks in advance for looking into it.
