Uhm, I'm in a bit of a hurry so I do not have time to look it up, but
doesn't mod_autoindex perform a subrequest on each entry in the directory,
and only list it if it comes out successful? If so, should it not be
possible to control which files are listed (and protected) through other
methods such as mod_rewrite or FilesMatch etc?
