Making Filezilla more intelligent than the user.

I got disapointed to discover that the "Host" field in Filezilla Site Manager DOES NOT accept the string "ftp." preceding the domain.
MOST FAMOUS ftp clients as Cute FTP, allow you to use this syntax for HOST: "ftp.site.com" BUT filezilla seems to be unable to connect just because of this "ignorable" redundance in the HOST typed.
I believe that with a few lines of code you could ignore "ftp." or even alert the user: "Please inform only the domain!" what makes no sense, because if the program noticed that the user input has "ftp." in the beginning, it should simply remove internally by code and SIMPLY CONNECT SUCCESSFULLY.
I am starting to use Filezilla (as I am Open Source lover) but I found it so ridiculous that the program DOESN'T connect JUST because you wrote "ftp." before the domain, because MOST ftp programs accept this and it is NOT incorrect.
I didn't test it on Linux, so I can not afirm that the behaviour is Windows-only or not.
Please add this little intelligence in Filezilla, it is so bad that the program is unable to see that "ftp.site.com" is the ftp of "site.com"
