Browsable is relative to the Browsable Method, see [1].

You can edit an HTML document describing why you
don't want this directory to be browsable, and put it as
the directory index.

In the next release, there will be a new rule that you can
put in the index field, it's *forbid*. If the index is *forbid*
then browsing the directory is forbidden.


Regards, Benoit.
