Allow downloading of files with are open for writing by another process => move it at user level

In fileZilla, their is a global option : "Allow downloading of files with are open for writing by another process" This is good, but unfortunatly not so good as it's a global option. in fact we need this option for some special users (who need to access some log file currently open for writing) but for all other users we need this option to be set as false (like it is by default).
we already implement it using the source code on svn, we can send the modifications we have done if you needed ...

So this patch is not completely like was described above. We planned to add the possibility to download some special files or file types (.log-files etc) even if this checkbox "Allow downloading of files with are open for writing..." is not set.
There's one more multi-line text field in the tab "Miscellaneous". You can type there the list of file names or patterns like "*.log" and they will be downloading even if this checkbox isn't checked.

I thing the behavior must be not exactly like on this path.
the best way is simply to add the memo with by default the value '*' or mean that if the check box "Allow downloading of files with are open for writing..." is checked then all the file are allowed to be downloaded when they are writing. (this is the actual behavior).
BUT if we add a filter in the memo (ex: *.log instead of or '*') and we check the checkbox "Allow downloading of files with are open for writing..." then ONLY the *.log file will be allowed to be downloaded when they are writing
it's just a line to change in the patch. the memo must be just here to 'filter' (or reduce) the files that will be impacted by the checkbox
in this way the xml file configuration if fully compatible with previous version of filezilla !
