I should add to this another non-rewrite option (it's a habit to avoid
rewrite whenever possible, not because there's anything wrong with it,
but because there are more specialised options).

<LocationMatch ^/_vti>
 Order allow,deny
 Allow from

This does the same thing, and should be quicker. Using mod_rewrite
here is only necessary when you need to see stuff like the query
string, or other non-uri-ref request attributes.
