Deliting files recursively SFTP

I was just wondering if you couldn't change how FileZilla deletes files recursively but also CHMOD as this is pretty much the same thing.
If you mark a folder and press delete, FZ scans the folders content and deletes the files one at a time. When using SFTP I am sure that the fastest solution would be "rm -r FOLDER"
The same thing goes for CHMOD where Linux incorporates a recursive function into the command too. "chmod -R FOLDER"
So everytime I delete a folder I am thinking "Why am I wasting my time on this, when I could do it 100 times quicker on SSH?"

SFTP isn't just an SSH with BASH. It's an SSH with SFTP as the shell. SFTP's rm does not support recursion.
You're asking for FzClient to use a check for the ability to run a normal shell, verify path settings, test for command functionality, and then take the heat when an uncontrolled shell deletes something improperly.
FZ cannot rely on having access to RM, nor a reliable path.
I highly recommend this be closed as WONTFIX.
