I've just uploaded a patch that enables that behavior. I've tested it in my laptop, which runs Red Hat Enterprise Linux and it worked as expected.

Transmit has this and works perfectly. Seems to upload to a temporary path and then (probably after some kind of integrity change) replace the previous version of the file.

Unfortunately it is not possible for a program to detect when another program has finished writing to a file such that it is save to upload a file. Blindly starting an upload at the wrong time can and does lead to corruption. Thus it is the user who needs to actively tell FileZilla when it is safe to transfer the files.

Case in point: Letting Dropbox loose on FileZilla's settings directory leads to corrupted settings. Same principle, Dropbox starts uploading files when FileZilla has not finished writing to the files. Since the files are then locked by Dropbox, the files aren't properly finalized.
