I do, my hosting provider use suexec but i can have .htaccess in
directories and have it rewrited by WP. Suexec doens't means you can't
have .htaccess usually it's used to grant privileges enough to script
to work without needing to change the dir permission through CHMOD.

The problems are often related to scripts that check a dir to see if
it's writable or set special chmod that with suexec get error even if
write is possibile or chmod is ignore cause unecessary.
