vsftpd with SSL auth but force plain data

I'd like to enable SSL authentication in vsftpd.conf but still somehow force plain data transfer; even if the client is capable of SSL data transfer. The way I understand the config, if I set ssl_enable=YES then if client wants to use SSL for data transfers, it can. I wish for force plain data transer, but still have SSL enabled for login. Is this possible with vsftpd? Thanks.

I added cmds_denied=PROT to my vsftpd.conf and data transfers are plain text now.

note: force_anon/local_data_ssl must be NO
cmds_denied is available in vsftpd versions >= 2.1.0

thanks for #vsftpd irc for a hint!
