Nope, sorry.  It is really just a matter of writing a program in any
language you want that looks at the HTTP_COOKIE env variable, checks
it against your database, and then either delivers the file (possibly
using a subrequest by emitting a Location: header with the path to the
file) or delivers a "Sorry, you are not authorized" page.  I couldn't
be any more specific than that without knowing a bunch of details
(which I don't really want to know anyway ;-)
