hmm, this might confuse users who are connecting to other servers(and
they have accidentally trying
to open their custom ldif file named 'config.ldif' ).

Can we have a "Open With" or something similar tab to open the config
file with different editor?

P.S:- This open a custom editor if file name is 'config.ldif' reminds
me of classing linux windowing
         environments which sometimes *hard* to predict why they are
crashing or behaving
         differently. It turns out, that it is due to some casing of
letter names of a file or other
         but leave no clue to the user about what it is expecting.
