I wrote one like this about four years ago.  It works with Apache and 
courier email.  It's a bit dusty now, but I could brush it off.

I don't think I got the bind integration working.

With apache2's new config file format, it should be pretty easy to run 
templates through a sed/awk/perl filter.

I used webDAV instead of FTP though - the customers loved it, especially 
with a technology like 'teamdrive' (IE webfolders hadn't been released 
at that time).

I considered my work to be mostly outdated by webmin though.
