Alter SYST reply to increase security

Is it possible to alter the "SYST" reply so that it doesn't report to the client that the server is FileZilla?

An example of the returned string can be:
215 UNIX Type: L8

Reason for asking is to enhance security - to make it harder to figure out what the server is.

I'm not sure if this has been raised before but I couldn't seem to find any.

Or, have I missed out an option somewhere? - but it looks like it's hard coded into the EXE...

I'm running FileZilla Server version 0.9.23 beta.

Security through obscurity is a bad idea.
