Remember Last Text / Binary Setting per File

I work with a system that doesn't use file extensions like the rest of the world. Files might be named with anything following the final dot, and it's just a part of the name, not an extension as is commonly understood. Some examples:


We also do a lot of transfers of binary information like images and zips. Would there be any way to "remember" the last mode used for transferring a specific file (i.e. "text" for items like those above and "binary" for images) so that if the same file is transferred again WinSCP intrinsically knows the right mode to use? I realize this could create some gargantuan file lists, but is it possible?
