AUTHORIZER="foo@localhost" was wrong example and must be like
AUTHORIZER="localhost" as in your example.

I suppose your example should be like this:
This authentication will succeed only if you can login the *FTP server*
on your "localhost" as the user "john" with the password.
(Your example may work if the FTP server is a proxy FTP server
which accepts "john@localhost" as a user name)

Sorry but I coule not make my mind about what should be used as a
authentication server when I initially wrote the manual.
The authentication server specified by AUTHORIZER is expected
to be a FTP server which authenticate users by a given pair of
user-name and password.
