If I am running multiple vsftpd daemons on a single machine, is it possible to specify the pluggable authentication module for each one?

In other words, can two vsftpd server instances run on different PAM files?

Under vsftpd.conf, there's an option called pam_service_name. Looks like I can change that and create the proper files in /etc.
