Heh! Just been thinking too hard about it, I suspect.

How about creating a new ftp user whose home directory is the document root
for your site? Or better yet, get hold of a copy of WinSCP2, or the PuTTY
SCP utility (can't recall its name, but it's on the PuTTY site)? Then you
can sack ftp altogether.
WinSCP is pretty cool - it's a standalone program and gives you a Norton
Commander-like or Explorer-like GUI. I got my Marketing and Sales director
using it, no problems! ;-)
