Similiar to previous request, but probably better. Create tasks, such as, "Need to FTP." Right-click file(s) and choose
task to assign to. Maybe an icon or something could be assigned to the task and somehow associated (optionally) with the
files in the file explorer to show that you're planning to do something with them.

Here's a scenario:

You have a large project on a Linux server. You're working on a Windows machine and can't duplicate the entire
environment on your computer. You don't want to do this over the server with vim, etc. You want to use Netbeans on your
computer. You only need to edit a few files in reality, but it's a large project, and you have no idea offhand how many
and what files need to be edited. You want to edit and make sure all changes are intact before you make any changes on
the server. So you need some way to remind yourself. Why not create a task to remind you? You would clearly see what
files belong to what task. And maybe FTP, etc. tasks can be automated, too.

Just seemed like it might be nice for those types of scenarios, but maybe not necessary because of version control? But
if we're not using version control on that particular project, then something like this might ease the burdon some.
