Hi zhang,
really interesting to see your modules, the idea is exactly what im trying to do
these 2 weeks.
What I see after checking your code is that :
1. If the token is invalid : return 403, otherwise 404.
2. When the request is valid (the token is exist), it returns 404, and then
internal redirect to the 'real' place => If someone knows the url of real place,
he can access without any authentication.

I had develop a module similar like that ( in fact I see that we have 80% same
code ), but the process is a little different. Can you take a look at these
threads and we can work on it together :)
