Description of problem:
Now that the preferred FTP server is vsftpd, logwatch should have a filter for
parsing vsftpd messages in /var/log/messages and /var/log/vsfptd.log. 
Currently, only the most limited information about ftp activities is reported.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install and run logwatch and vsftpd.
2. Read logwatch reports.

Actual Results:  Some vsftp activity is reported as "Unknown entries" in the
pam_unix section and as ftp connections in the Connections (secure-log) section.

Expected Results:  vsftp activity reported in an intelligent manner in its own
section, as it is with wu_ftpd and proftpd.

This is better directed to the upstream maintainer (and is probably not horribly hard
for him to add).
