It would be useful to be able to specify permission on a per download basis.

Branch 0.12 with changeset r5690 now contains additional resource based checks for permissions. This can be combined with TracFineGrainedPermissions and FineGrainedPageAuthzEditorPlugin to get per-download permission control.

This is example of authzpolicy.conf which will disallow to download download with id 2 to user test:

test = ""

Hovewer, user test have to have DOWNLOADS_VIEW global permission to actually see list of downloads.

Current implemetation just disables links in table of downloads for downloads that user can't download and disallow direct download of them with apropriate URL. I'm aware that I'll have to disable links further in [download:<id>] macro but this is not done yet. I'm awating comments on what else shoud be controlled by fine grained permissions than just file downloads? Thanks for any suggestion.

r5752 finishes this and changes realm to [downloads:*].
