Question group write privileges on web dirs


i would suggest to have group write privileges on all webdirs because of the following:
For example:
We have a client. This client has multiple websites. He wants to control these websites via 1 FTP user. In the options you can point to /var/www/clients/client1 instead of /var/www/clients/client1/web1.
But you are only allow to write to web1 because that is your current user. You are not allowed to write to web2, because other directories don't have the group write bit set....

It is possible to change this for a current directory, but when a change occurs, your settings are gone again.

This change doesn't have impact on the security because it is still the same user/client.

Could this feature be added in the next release?

Many thanks. Bart Dorlandt
