Thunar queued job execution

Hi Stefan,

your solution-approach sounds ok, however I would solve the issue in a
different way:
I would add a "pause" and a "queue" button into the file-transfer-window
which pops up when tranfering/copying files, where "queue" = pause +
auto-wakeup when there is no other file-transfere running.

I quess there should be a way to pause thunar-jobs ? .. e.g. minimize
it's prio, so that it is not scheduled.

That should minimize thread-switching ... so the user would have the
full freedom to only queue single file-transfere operations on need.
