It'd be a nasty hack, hiding what is really an issue with the web
server's configuration.  If you think this is an issue you will almost
certainly want to address it across everything and not just WordPress.

This risks of allowing directory indexing might be something to mention
in the documentation if it's not already but that's all I think it needs.
