#5913: Windows: No option to open files with a non-associated editor

 One of the reasons I really like Cyberduck on OS X is that I can directly
 edit any file with TextWrangler and have it updated in real time. It even
 allows me to use TextWrangler if the file ''is'' associated with another
 application-- which is useful for filetypes like .html where the default
 association is a web browser.

 In the Windows version, on the other hand, the list of editors is strictly
 populated with those that are defined in Windows file associations,
 without the ability to specify another default editor globally within
 Cyberduck. The good news is that it's possible to see other associations
 than the default, so programs which do have an "edit" action defined can
 take advantage of that. However, there's no way to, say, edit a .sh file
 with Notepad++ unless it's already been associated with that application--
 nor is there any way to open a file with an editor that's not associated
 in Windows.

 There should be an option in Cyberduck to add an additional global editors
 that can be used on any file, as with the Mac version. I really don't want
 to have to add Windows associations for every obscure Unix extension I can
 think of.
