Modifying FTP user' rights/permissions/upload criteria

I have a few FTP users on my linux server(running vsftpd). They all have their own directory and can upload and delete files in that folder.

Now, I was wondering whether it would be possible to create special permissions/rights for users. For example, I would like to make it so that certain users could not upload .exe files, or I want a certain user to only be able to upload image files (gif, jpg).

Is that possible to do?

That would greatly depend on the version of ftpd you're using, in the case of vsftpd, I don't believe it supports that operation. If I had to take a guess proftpd might or could be extended to (or might have a module that provides that functionality.)
