Backing off on using file entities to solve my file permissions issue

After a couple of days of struggling to populate the fields provided by file entity as part of my migrate module migration, I have thrown in the towel. I opened an issue with a feature request for migration support with the new version of the file entity module, but in the unlikely event that my request gets any traction I will probably have moved way past the point that I can still use it.

Struggling with Files and PDF Thumbnails in Drupal 7

I'm working on building a document library in Drupal 7. The project has presented a lot more challenges than I initially anticipated, and one of them is the presentation of files. Each entry can either be an internal only entry, or be visible to the world. Each entry can also contain multiple files, and each of those can either be internal only or visible to the world.
