What happens with the incoming directory? I think "normal" setups
activate it only as anonymous.

Also you have a problem with chroot ftp servers where you see different
contents depending on your login information, an anonymous ftp has a
different root than a logged user.

I'm not saying your proposal is worst than any other, it's just it has
problems we should also fix (like others proposals).
