Thanks for your reply. Globally, the description is not adequate, mainly
because I pasted the description from sourceforge, which was describing
the server for all possible users (including windows ones, yes).

I changed the description to be the following:
wzdftpd is designed to be run as a user, and to be entirely
SITE commands. It works on linux/bsd/win32, supports Ipv6, SSL, and is
Features are: flexible user management, acls, virtual users/groups,
speed, bandwith limitation, per command authorization, virtual
ip changes auto-detection, etc.
It includes several authentication backends, is easily
scriptable and provides
