Map FTP Logins to Windows User Accounts

I have a feeling I already know the answer to this request :)
however, it needs to be asked.

I would like to have pass through authentication on the Filezilla server to the host os security provider. Specifically, I would like the ability to map an FTP Login (ACustomer) to a Windows Account (ACustomer) for two purposes:
1 - to use the Windows authentication (so password is only stored once)
2 - to use impersonation to validate User Access Permissions to files and directories in the Windows File System.

To the user, everything would still look like / behave like vanilla ftp; but this would simplify the administration side of things.

Life is too short to duplicate my os/file system security settings in the FileZilla Server UI.
