Thanks a lot for yet another interesting suggestion.

Yes, I'm on debian. Had never looked into FUSE. Sounds like a really interesting option. If I could use FUSE to hide files with a future timestamp and automatically expose them at the appropriate time, then that would be an ideal solution since it would work with nginx and anything else that should or should not have access.

There will obviously be some performance impact, but not a huge one I would imagine. I can't spare time for experiments with FUSE right now, but will definitely look at this promising option at a later stage.
