[PLUG] FTP Proxy Wanted

I use Apache's mod-proxy to have multiple web sites all accessable via a 
single external IP address.  The user requests a web page with the IP of the 
main web server, and the apache mod-proxy module then forwards the request to 
a separate apache server on a separate virtual machine.

I'd like to do something similar with FTP protocol.   

The apache docs talk a little bit about how the mod_proxy also handles ftp 
traffic, but I haven't been able to figure out how to do this with FTP.

Here's how I would like it to work:

A user requests a ftp session with  ( points to 
the same single IP address as a dozen other ftp sites).  There is an ftp proxy 
server running at this IP understands that this is for, and which 
forwards the request to the correct separate virtual machine on a separate 
internal IP.

Anybody know if this is possible, or how to do this?  Thanks!
