...The one I'm thinking of (but don't remember the name)...

There's probably a lot of these- it could be pureftpd that you're thinking of (or it could be something else!)

From their splash page:

Pure-FTPd is actively supported, and it was always designed with security in mind, and the code is always re-audited as new kind of vulnerabilities are discussed. Unlike other popular FTP servers, the number of root exploits found since the very first released version is zero.

    No actually, while pureftpd is good, it wasn't what I meant. This daemon had anon-something or other in its name and didn't facilitate any other than anonymous logins at all. It was explicitly written to run anon-FTP servers only with an absolute minimum amount of code. Can probably be found via freshmeat..

    Makeshifts last the longest.

      Aha - no surprise that also in the ftp-daemon writing community TMTOWTDI :)
