Maybe an rlimit_as or rlimit_cpu entry in /etc/xinetd.d/vsftp would be helpful indirectly. But this limit is a service limit. I think it would be per-connetion if each connection launches a service. Limiting the number of connections per IP and bandwidth limiting would be easier to achieve.

This site has some general information on user quotas:
