Hmmm, bad idea IMHO.  Very easy to break through that.

There are two easy ways to provide proper protection.  Instead of placing
the auth directives in an .htaccess file, simply place them in the main
httpd.conf inside either a <Directory> section or a <Location> section.
Use <Directory> with the physical path, or <Location> with the web path.
