but what about ssh, sftp and things like fb_realpath

Ah, that's right.
Maintaining these things is hard work.

BTW, there's ways to restrict ftp-users from logging in via SSH
(you either redirect their shells to /dev/null or you just drop a line in the config file sshd_config, something like
AllowUsers username
DenyUsers username
I personally gave up on it. I disabled ssh (cos I don't need it)
and I allow ftp from certain IP's only, which may not be enough, but I've decided it's enough for me.

There was this really cool script that i used that created ftp-only users (no login, either via SSH or to the machine itself, chroot jail, etc.) but it ceased to work after...an update.
