Comment (by docwhat):

 Would index.html be better than index.php?  There would be no risk of any
 code executing *ever* by accident.

 Either way, there should be a comment explaining why the file is blank and
 that it should be kept that way.

 Alternatively, rewrite rules might be better, since you could redirect the
 user to a legit page (like the root) in case they were walking up a URL.
