I think a Mongrel Gem Plugin would be a much better fit.  Zed has done
a great job of making it easily extensible.  Josh Ferguson released a
secure download plugin
(http://rubyforge.org/projects/msecuredownload/) for mongrel.   I also
added you to the mongrel upload progress backpack page
(http://technoweenie.backpackit.com/pub/602283) that I've set up.  The
code isn't *quite* ready so I have not set up a rubyforge project yet.
