The default configuration file contains:

IndexIgnore .??* *~ *# HEADER* README* RCS CVS *,v *,t

That first one - .??* - covers .ht* and many other files that one would like to
hide.

Every third-party distro that I've looked at also includes something like this
in the default. Also, the example in the docs included .htaccess.

However, what I've done in r1059562 is make the example given in the docs match
the example in the default config file provided at
conf/extra/httpd-autoindex.conf, which is as shown above.
