One solution is to provide a temporary identifyer via cookie, which gets
set if the user sees your page but is not set if she wants to
download it directly. A simple non guessable scrable mechanism
using your page url, file url and probably ip of the downloader
should do for the cookie value.
File objects can have a "precondition" which refers to a method
where you can evaluate the cookie and serve the file or refuse
access (via raise "Redirect",url)
I would not recommend to use HTTP_REFERRER for this, because this
is by no way relieable.
