A point which would have legitimacy, were we a web-focused sysadmin
mailing list.   Seeing as we are concerned with the development of
WordPress and what we can do to alleviate the problem as far as WP is
concerned, I'd say a few index.php/index.html files scattered about is
the SMALLEST step we can take, and an easy one to boot.
