Description

I use Smultron for editing, which works great with Cyberduck. But I also keep an Open Office Calc spreadsheet (.ods file) on the server where I keep track of my project's progress. Right now, I have to download that file, edit, and re-upload when I make a change. It would be nice if I was able to choose OpenOffice or any other applications as a choice in the Edit With menu.

One of the easiest ways this could work is if in the Preferences window, putting a list of editing applications that the user can modify and when they right-click on a file and select Edit With, that list of editors shows up, allowing the user to edit with an application in that list.

This would also make Cyberduck a good alternative to using a MobileMe iDisk.

#2306 appears to address the same problem, but using a much different approach. That one sounds almost like a request for synchronizing remote folders and local folders. If #2306, or something similar gets implemented, then this one should be easy (may even be covered by the implementation of #2306).

This is referenced because if we want to support arbitrary editors (that to not have ODB support) we must watch the filesystem for changes.
