Lock Step Directory feature

When using FileZilla in large and complex sites, one of the most common mistakes -and the most catastrophic- is to transfer the files from one folder into the wrong destination folder. This is mostly because I suck as a programmer, but you can't fix that.
Going to a strange site to get a file or two is one thing, but in several development environments I keep a duplicate set of files on my site. When I transfer the entire site of course, I select ALL on one side and begin a transfer - Filezilla traverses the directories on both sites in lock step.
BUT - if I have to manually navigate down 5 directory trees to find a starting place, I have to manually navigate that tree TWICE - one for source and one for destination
If there was a very quick "Lock Step" button (and By quick I mean somewhere the file panes, clearly on or off, and ONLY for the current running of the program) where I could specify to match directory changes in both source and destinations - it would be a HUGE benefit.
Upon accessing a site, I click the button ON and then traverse only one side, the other side keeping in lock step, throwing an error of course, if the directory doesn't exist.
A huge time saver in large operations.
