An idea for GUI designers and developers -- a standalone app / OS level change.

When I'm under VPN & putty I sometimes need to run an sftp client. Currently I have two options to use: WinSCP (I find it easier to use in some cases, like quickly watching / editing the contents of different text files) and Secure Shell Client from SSH. For some reason the first client loads in about 2-3 minutes after I log in. So: it would be great to have an option to configure launch of a program depending on a certain event, like putty execution, connected to a certain host.

This may give a lot of opportunities to quite flexibly configure your GUI world and save a lot of time spent otherwise on the monkey repetitions.
