Not starting a vi vs. emacs war here, but I follow Mike's response and 
second proftpd instead of vsftpd. I often question the assumption you 
have for #1, some of the choices the Redhat team make are never the ones 
I would make, down here in the trenches. I've always used proftpd out of 
FreshRPMS instead of whatever was shipped with RH installs...

Example: removing ncftp and replacing it with lftp -- why remove the 
tool everyone prefers to use, and has used for years? The first thing I 
do is install a recompiled copy from Fedora.
