Nope.  For one thing, "Allow from none" is not proper syntax.  This
will actually attempt to allow access to the hostname "none", causing
a DNS lookup on every request.

For another thing, these worm requests are rejected by apache very
early in request processing with a 414 (request too long) error, so
they will not be affected by this configuration.

My earlier mail gave a better solution.
