Additional slot to View/Edit files

There's an issue when one opens FileZilla 3.7.3, connects to a server, starts to download a bunch of big files (e.g. backups), and then notices a need to View/Edit a small text file (e.g. a .php or .html one).

The current choices are to either wait for one of the long already-started downloads to finish in order to View/Edit a tiny file, or to interrupt one of them. Both of these are more hassle than necessary in order to view a tiny file.

The issue can be resolved by allowing an extra download slot to be used only to View/Edit files. It would likely be enough if this extends only the concurrent downloads limit but still obeys the maximum simultaneous transfers limit. This could be added as a checkbox option in Settings > Transfers, perhaps to the right side of the "Limit for concurrent downloads" line.
