I would like to open multiple FTP connections and be
able to transfer between them. I would like to be able
to transfer between remote hosts without going through
the client machine I'm running on. LLNL XFTP could do this:

    You can now transfer directly between ftp connections (check
    Exprimental features -> FTP connection in local tab). IO
    however is still routed through your interface, direct
    connections should follow once all connection types are
    ported so they can transfer to each other directly.

    If you open a FTP connection in the local tab, you can't click
    on the directory name and enter a directory to change to. It
    still tries to open a JFileChooser dialog to the local machine.

    I would prefer if each FTP window opened seperately and
    there was no seperation between "local" and "remote"
    machines. I could have 5 windows open, and each could be
    a "remote" or "local" machine and I could transfer between
    any of them (preferably with drag-and-drop).
