I have a VPN between the client systems and the FTP server;
consequently, the password they use to log in to FTP is entirely
irrelevant, as no system which hasn't authenticated itself to the VPN
(via a certificate) gets in in the first place.

Consequently, I just use anonymous FTP, and have the FTP server
configured to give each connection a different filesystem branch based
on the address that it's coming from (since I have OpenVPN set up to
configure both forward and reverse DNS lookup for systems based on the
CN of their certificate after they connect).
