Usually apache is setup to refuse to serve .ht* files for security reasons. If this is not
the case, there's no reason the htaccess file should not be available via webdav.

The block usually looks something like this in httpd.conf:

<Files ~ "^\.ht">
    Order allow,deny
    Deny from all
    Satisfy All

Now, exposing the innards of the .htaccess of especially .htpasswd files like this is certainly
risky, so I wouldn't do it.

Oh, he's just like any other man, only more so.
