[Seaside] Serving private static files

Hi list,

I want to serve private static file from disk with Seaside. By private, 
I mean that only logged-in users can access those files. Users would 
only see the files they have the permission to see/download.

What's the best solution to achieve this ? I see two directions:

- embed something like WAExternalFileLibrary, access the session and 
serving the files through Seaside.
- store the files on S3 and generate an url with a token, only active 
during a given amount of time. The files would be in a private bucket.

Have you ever encountered that use case ? What would you recommend ?
