No, I do not want to implement a keep-alive feature. I don't want the client
logged into a remote server for long periods of time if they aren't using it.
For small sites, this shouldn't be a big deal but it is a big deal to large
FTP servers.

I will fix it so that when you are editing a file, if there is a timeout when
it tries to upload the file, it will automatically reconnect and not wait 30
seconds till it tries again.
