I know Debian already uses /var/www for HTTP servers (and has for a
while), so no problem there.  I think /var/named corresponds to
/var/cache/bind on Debian, but I could be wrong.  /home/ftp has been
standard for anon. ftp for a while on Debian; I suspect /var/ftp is
acceptable by analogy with /var/www.
