Default Sending SIZE <file> during site-to-site transfers for progress

During site-to-site transfers, FlashFXP currently bases the file's progress on the previous transfer's speed (size/time). Rather than estimating the approximate remaining time, what about periodically sending a SIZE <file> during the transfer? By doing so, you would be able to calculate the remaining time and completed amount a lot more accurately.

Provided this does not break an RFC, I would think it's a worthy implementation.

problem with this is the same as with 'send noop during transfer' option.
some servers don't handle commands during trasnfers nicely.

Yeah. I suppose another toggle would have to be added, to enable/disable this functionality on a per-site basis (or work it in with the "Send noop during transfer" option).

Sending SIZE was considered but it was too late in the v3.0 schedule to look into it. This will be considered for future versions.
