in contrast to the way the discussions on 2.7 and 2.8 are going, i would like to see a way to:
* lock an upload (be it a document/media/photo/whatever) to a single post/page so that it is not available anywhere else;
* lock and track the image/document etc so that it can only be viewed/downloaded through the post and not directly addressed.
i would thing that the second bullet would be addressed by storing all media outside the webroot and linking to each through a php media serving script which would authenticate the incoming user based on whatever credentials the site owner specified (from referrer on up to login).
is anyone aware of a current method to achieve this, and/or a plugin that approaches this functionality?
