Copy files/folders on the same remote connection

Right now, if I need to copy files/folders, I need to download
them and reupload them (or 'cp' command via SSH).
It would be very useful to be able to copy a selection of files/folders on the same remote connection.
I know that the FTP protocol does not support copying files (only move).
When we select to 'view/edit' a file with the default editor, the file is downloaded in a temporary location, and then optionally deleted when it is uploaded.
Maybe the same kind of mechanism could be used, but for copying files? automatically download files and folders to copy in a temporary location and then upload them at the right place (and maybe adding a '_copy' prefix if the remote file already exists).
