Have a look at rredir in the contrib directory of the source
distribution. It's even mentioned in the release notes. :)

Currently there's no "neighbor_type_acl" option... The only way I can
think of that might work is, if the cache has two or more IP addresses
(and is actually listening on them,) specify one as parent and the
other as sibling, then use cache_host_acl with a url_regex type acl
to make sure all the ftp requests go to the sibling cache.
