Subject: [users@httpd] Denying Read Access to File Extensions

I have enabled FancyIndexing for my server and I am wondering how I can
block read access to just certain file extensions.  I know I can block
people from seeing certain files with the <FILES> directive, but I want
users to be able to list the contents of a directory but block them from
actually downloading certain file extensions.  Is there a directive to
do this?
