Create non-existent local folders when synchronized browsing

When using synchronized browsing, if you navigate to a folder on the remote server that doesn't exist locally, the folder would be created locally (probably automatically). Or a prompt could appear asking the user if they would like the folder to be created.

Currently, when you navigate to a remote folder that doesn't exist locally (with synchronized browsing enabled), you get a warning:

FOLDER PATH does not exist or cannot be accessed. Disable synchronized browsing and continue changing the remote directory?

I think it would be much more intuitive for the local folder to be created automatically if it doesn't exist, or at least prompt the user to choose whether or not they would like it to be created.

If a prompt is the best way to go, I would recommend a setting be created to 'always create missing local folders', as it would get annoying to always have to click 'create folder'.

This ticket is just about creating that missing directory. A fully-featured directory synchronisation is requested in ticket:1591.
