 I love that Cyberduck uses Filters in Preferences to exclude things during
 upload and download! However, sometimes I need to exclude files on a "per
 folder" basis. I may have a number of large files on the server that I do
 not need to synchronize to my local drive, but I need to synchronize
 everything else. In this case Synchronize doesn't work for me.

 I think it would be great to have a Synchronization Filter File that can
 be used in addition to the settings in preferences, on a "per folder"
 basis. I envision it working like this:

 We create a file in each folder being synchronized:[[BR]]
 cyberduck-sync.txt (this file is always ignored during synchronization
 cyberduck-sync.txt (local folder) is a regular expression of items to
 avoid during the upload/mirror synchronization process[[BR]]
 cyberduck-sync.txt (ftp site) is a regular expression of items to avoid
 during the download/mirror synchronization process[[BR]]

 If the two files are in place, now when I synchronize the two folders, in
 addition to the filter settings in Preferences, it also honors the regex
 filters in the "cyberduck-sync.txt" files for upload and download when
 running the synchronization process.[[BR]]
 This could get tricky when folders are nested inside other
 A/AA/cybersync.txt <-> B/BB/cybersync.txt[[BR]][[BR]]
 If you sync A <-> B does cyberduck honor the cybersync.txt of AA and
 My guess is not, but if this is a caveat the user knows about, it can be
 dealt with.[[BR]]

 Anyway, I just thought it'd suggest a new feature that hopefully isn't
 super difficult to implement, but could be really useful for us Cyberduck
 sync users!
