Option 4:  store the documents on some file server -- it doesn't have
to be the directory's host -- under any convenient naming scheme.
Define an attribute to hold the list of file paths associated with a
given object.

Mapping files by path allows you to change your mind about how you
want to arrange them in the filesystem without having to rearrange
what has already been stored, and decouples the file store from
dependency on the structure of your directory.

You still need to build the consistency-checking tool mentioned by
another poster.
