Lot of work.
You would have to create a usergroup per user.

If this was a task for our company I would patch nf_downloads so that 
you can select a user (or several users just to be flexible) for each 
download. This would mean less work because you would not have to create 
a usergroup per user AND you could manage all downloads on one page.
Might get a little messy in the BE if you have 30 users with 10 files 
each, but still doable.

if ($GLOBALS['TSFE']->fe_user->user['ahnung'] == 0) {
	$this->fresseHalten = 1;
