There is already such thing out there.

Description: A powerful replacement for the standard ftpd
 wu-ftpd (Washington University ftp server) is a replacement ftp server
 for Unix systems.  Besides supporting the ftp protocol defined in RFC 959,
 it adds the following features: 
    o logging of transfers . 
    o logging of commands
    o on the fly compression and archiving
    o classification of users on type and location
    o per class limits
    o per directory upload permissions
    o restricted guest accounts
    o system wide and per directory messages. 
    o directory alias
    o cdpath
    o filename filter
Also the package sets up anonimous ftp (I think you have to remove the 
ftp directory and ftp user for automatic configuration to work.).
