Not so minor if you want to avoid having your schema break other software you 
may want to run in future...

Why not just make the shell /bin/false for when you want to stop ftp and ssh, 
and make the shell /bin/true (and put /bin/true in /etc/shells) to allow ftp 
but not ssh?  This is the traditional method of doing such things and it 
still works...
