File Transfer Pluggin: Support SUDO

I would like to see the support of a SUDO command for the file transfer plugin. So that I can use a "userA" to connect to the server but then make  "sudo su - userB" to switch to another user (e.g. "root"). 

Many environments do not allow the connection with "root" but only with a non-privileged user. If you then need to to transfer files as "root" you cannot do that. 

I also have environments where I need to switch to another user (not "root") after login. So I would like to see a configurable option which sudo command is used, just as we have it on Windows with WinSCP today.
