Missing "type" column in remote panel

1. Right click in remote panel
2. Choose "Show Columns"
Expected: Type should be in the submenu as it is for the local panel
Problem: Type is missing from submenu.

Type column is absent by purpose. IMHO this has no meaning for remote files. But as several people demand this for some reason, I consider adding it. BTW, why do you need it?

I've been looking for a remote file type column as well. It would come in very handy sometimes. For instance, if I compile java code on my local Windows machine and upload to a Linux server, I want to upload only .class files, not .java files. This is easily done, because I can order by File Type locally. But if I upload a few directories at once, I might want to delete the remote .java source files because they never get updated when I upload only .class files. If I could sort the remote files by Type, I could easily delete the files I don't want, or easily download only the files I want. Thanks.

1) You can sort files by extension
2) You can select files by extension
3) You can skip files by extension from upload/download
