Using X-Accel-Redirect requires that either a) you do not have a
dedicated download-server in addition to your webserver or b) your
download-server has access to your (user) database.
The nice thing about a timeout value like in lighttpd's mod_secdownload
is that your download-server does not even need a connection to your
database and therefore can be located anywhere you can imagine: You just
let an application running on your webserver create a secret link and
your lighttpd-download-server can validate this request completely on
So: Yes, a timeout value would be useful. :)
