What will we do when more protocols are equiped with this feature?  
I can imagine that at least the following protocols can have such a
feature: FTP, NFS, CIFS, TFTP, SMTP, POP3, IMAP, MSN, RDP.

Maybe "File | Export | Objects | <protocol>" would be more scalable
(although initially it would mean an additional click).

To keep the context-menu small I would suggest an option like
"Export | Objects" whenever a certain protocol has an export-function
enabled. The user knows which protocol (s)he is currently viewing
anyways...
