e-junkie also emailed me back (promptly) with a little info on how they 
obfuscate the download link from would-be prying eyes.  I am satisfied 
that they have a reasonable process in place.  However, for faint of 
heart buyers, I might add really simple FAQ noting what you said on the 
website.  The concept of download links and email messages that get 
caught by spam filters can thwart may novices.
