I am using BSDftpd-ssl on a production machine to provide restricted 
access to users' web pages.  It seems to work fine.  I have never 
encountered any problems with it.  However, I don't have many users 
with web pages so I wouldn't call this a high traffic feature.   I 
probably don't get more than a hand full of connections daily.
