I used to use this type of approach. However I found that more and more 
clients have files which they want protected, not just pages. A such I've 
moved towards mod_auth_mysql or mod_auth_ldap (depending up on size and 
availability). I realize that I can (and have) write a page that will get a 
file on the file-system and pass it through to the user. However the added 
URL complexity tends to confuse the most users.
