use a PTV?

in your page:  (:page_expire: 2009-01-29:)

in your config:

$expires = strtotime(PageTextVar($pagename, "page_expire"));
if ( !strncasecmp( $pagename, 'GroupName', N ) {
   $HandleAuth['download'] = 'download';
   $DefaultPasswords['download'] =
     ( $Now < $expires ) ? '@limited' : '@lock';

I have not tested this.
