[thelist] CF: Cloaking directories for file downloads?

I saw that a sofware vendor had used a scheme like this in order for the 
user to download a file, but that the URL was good for only one time


I'm currently implementing a PayPal/file download solution, and I'd like to 
be able to do something like this. Other than creating a new directory, 
copying the file over, downloading it then deleting the file, then 
directory per transaction, can someone suggest how I might do this?

The idea is to have be able to hide the true location of a file so that the 
user doesn't start distributing the URL among all of their friends. It's 
just a simple security measure.

Suggestions, anyone?
