they serve different needs...
localfs will map a whole directory and all its subdirectories,
ExtFile and ExternalFile will only do 1 file per instance.

if the users are zope users, sure - just an a LocalFS for each user
and restrict access to the owner. 

on the filesystem, everything must be readable by the user who runs 
the Zope process.
