Since WordPress itself relies on index.php being a functional
DirectoryIndex, we can safely assume that blank index.php files will
function correctly inside our sub-directories.  This is an easy thing to
do to calm some reactionary folks.

Better still, perhaps, to make these subordinate index.php files
redirect to the main blog page.
