Thank you. Both your suggestions are definitely worth considering.
However, and I probably should have said this in the first place, most
of these PDFs are hidden behind a login*, while a few of them are even
paid-for. (And to make it even more complicated, PDFs become free
after a while, while their location stays the same.) Apache knows -via
a whole bunch of mod_perl modules- whether the user is logged in and,
if they are, whether they have paid us money, so I think moving the
PDFs to a different sever -whether on the same machine or not- it
would over-complicate things. And, in particular, wouldn't be the
quick solution I'm looking for.

* it is basically this that makes me believe that users who
'DownThemAll' are genuine users, rather than people trying to do a
very simple DOS attack.
