#9867: Restore ""Open new connection" for transfers

        Type:  enhancement  |     Status:  new
    Priority:  normal       |  Milestone:
   Component:  core         |    Version:  5.3.5
    Severity:  normal       |   Keywords:
Architecture:               |   Platform:
 Before, Transfers preferences proposed only two options:

 1. "Open new connection"
 2. "Use browser connection"

 Then "Open multiple connections" appeared as a third choice, and "Open new
 connection" has now been removed (in last version Version 5.3.9 (23624)
 for instance).

 Nevertheless, it would be interesting to keep the 3 possible choices, and
 therefore restore option "Open new connection".
 Indeed, some light file transfer servers (in a set-top box for instance)
 are sometimes limited to 2 connections.
 In such a case, "Open a new connection" is a perfect compromise:
 - Cyberduck can perform the whole download/upload file list in sequence
 inside the Transfers window
 whereas "Open multiple connections" would fail.
 - Meantime, the user can still browse the contents with the opened browser
 whereas "Use browser connection" would prevent from doing that.

 Hoping this enhancement will be possible in future releases.
