Are you sure you can't do what you want with ftp voyager?

it compares the two folders (local and remote) against all your criteria 
and shows you the results before synchronizing either up or down

you can specify:

ignore case
compare size (or not)
compare time (or not
if to include subfolders

it will allow you to ignore older/newer on remote and local

and you can remove known (non-sync) files from the compare list before 
synchronising and you can synch the remote with the local or vice versa.

You just need to supervise it a bit - but that's probably a good thing?

As far as I can see it will offer to upload files that "exist only on my 
machine" or are "are newer on my machine [1]"

it will ignore files that "are the same on both machines" and will offer 
to download files that "exist only on the remote server" or "are newer on 
the remote server [1]"

[1] if you tick "compare time"

what scenario specifically won't it do? because I would recommend it
