#6021: execute Send Command in browser's current directory
    Reporter:  kazar        |      Owner:
        Type:  enhancement  |     Status:  new
    Priority:  normal       |  Milestone:
   Component:  core         |    Version:  4.0.2
    Severity:  normal       |   Keywords:  Send Command
Architecture:               |   Platform:
 When sending a command to the remote server, such as "wget", execute the
 results in the same directory the user is currently browsing in the
 Cyberduck window.

 This way the file downloaded to the remote server (still using the "wget"
 example) will be where the user expects to see it. Currently commands
 default to executing on the home directory of the logged in server user,
 requiring us to either find the file and mv it to the desired directory,
 or to type (using a drupal installation as the example):

 wget ~/public_html/sites/all/modules/date-7.x-2.0-alpha3.tar.gz

 ... even if we're currently *looking* at the sites/all/modules directory.

 With this enhancement the command would become simply:

 wget http://ftp.drupal.org/files/projects/date-7.x-2.0-alpha3.tar.gz

 This is a matter of convenience and end-user expectation. However,
 considering the destructive power of some CLI commands such as "rm", this
 enhancement could conceivably also prevent serious unexpected results.
