There is already such thing out there.

Status: install ok installed

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 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.).
