Our download class can already serve files from outside the webroot. If
you move the images directory, getimage.php will automatically be used
to serve images for articles, userphotos, and topics.

So apart from the access control, we can already do that.

The problem with this is that FCKeditor would need to know about it.
When you upload an image, for example, it uses <img> tags to embed it.
So we would either need to modify FCKeditor (not likely to happen) or
disable its upload feature entirely and do it all outselves ...
