[FX.php List] [OFF] Restricting web directory/downloads via FM?

Hi all

I've got a new client that would like to make some downloadable  
materials (mostly PDFs) available to their authorized users.  The  
client would like to be able to upload files to some directory on  
their site and have only logged-in users (authenticated via FMP  
"users" table) be able to view and/or download them.

Anybody have any thoughts on the best & simplest way to do this?  (or  
are best and simplest mutually exclusive? ;)

I've thought of giving the client access to edit an html page with  
links to each of the downloadable files -- and I'd make that page  
accessible only to logged in users.  Are there easy ways to avoid  
having the client have to update html and hrefs?
