add all files in subdirectories to the transfer queue

I love WinSCP. However, a frequent use case for me is the need to move an entire directory of files, with sub-directories multiple levels deep. As mentioned in this bug, items selected for transfer are not queued recursively, leading to each sub-directory having a single spot in the queue, rather than each file in each sub-directory getting queued.

This can lead very quickly to only transferring a single file at a time, regardless of the 'max # of transfers at at time' setting for background transfers.

Changing the queuing behavior to recursive would greatly speed up transferring entire directory structures, which would be awesome.

Is this implemented?

I'm using 4.3.1 (Build 1099) on Windows XP (32-bit), and when I queue a directory, it's only 'one' item. I'd like it to queue up the directory, and sub directories as individual files, as it indexes a dir.

So item 1 would be index, item 2+ would be items that was recently indexed?

Is it implemented in such a way, and if it is, where do I switch it on?

It is not implemented this way.
