Thumbs up Web/Ftp on Ubuntu

Hi there, I've just installed a base Lampp Server on Ubuntu.
What I would like to be able to do is to easily create a new system user and have their home directory /home/USER. Then they should also have the following:
- An Apache virtual directory/server for their website/domain name
- Private ftp account for them to access their home directory
- Public ftp account for public ftp access
- Subversion repositories for their use

Is there a good bash script out there (I haven't found any in Google yet) that will take care of setting up all the directories and configuration, or is it pretty much a manual process by either typing on the command line, or visiting multiple areas in something like Webmin?

Thanks very much.

If you have some experience with the Linux command-line it would probably only take about an hour to learn bash scripting to the level that you need to make your own:
