I have one question: When both .listing files and http directory
listing are available, which method is prefered?

>From what you say, .listing files can be harmfull, so, I suppose tla
should prefer standard directory listing. If this is the case, then,
is it really a problem to have .listing files when they are not
necessary? If they're not used by default, then, I guess it's not a
problem to have them screwed up ...

(I may be wrong ...)
