Not that they're nice suggesions:
1) don't use Stunnel for something as already broken as
ftp. If you must use ftp w/ ssl support, get an ssl
enabled ftp server, such as proftpd.
2) ssl-protected ftp is not going to work through firewalls
nicely because the firewall can't inspect the packets
to re-write the IP addresses, or allow the ephemeral
ports, so you're stuck hoping they have a permissive
outbound firewall, you've got dedicated ports open on
your firewall that allow anything from anyone without
restriction and your ftp server is hard coded to use
only ephemeral ports in that range, and that the client
uses passive ftp only because active just plain won't work.
3) ftp icky. icky icky icky icky.
