Create a /etc/ftp.conf file and put *all* configuration information
(excepting that currently in /etc/ftpusers and /etc/ftpchroot) in
there. Three config files is plenty for any program; if you use
/etc/ftpconv just for the conversions, we'll need a fourth one to
turn on and off things like README notification and so on.
For each of the features, I'd have three options: on, anonymous
only, and off. That way we can make sure that regular users aren't
going to get README warnings as they wander about their home
