Description

I often transfer files through FileZilla that are of varying sizes; and I often find myself prioritizing files by size, since I want to download the smaller ones first, then gradually start downloading larger files as the queue gets completed.

So here's my idea; Say, while you're transferring a 10MB file that takes some time to upload, if the next file is only 2KB, for example, then it will override the transfer limit automatically and upload that 2KB file while it's uploading the 10MB file. if the next file is, say, 3MB, then it will wait until the 10MB file transfer is done.

It's kind of hard to explain but I hope you get the gist of it. This would be nice to have as a option, especially when you are backing up a website via FTP to your computer.

Anyway, I hope the see this feature implemented eventually. Thanks for reading this long request. I have to say that I would not be as happy using FTP if it weren't for FileZilla; it's been the most helpful program for FTP uploads I've ever used. Thank you so much for developing it.

Cheers!
