Or there is the

  Options +Indexes

for the Apache config [1]. You can fine-tune how the index itself
is rendered via the IndexOptions directive [2].

This would be a more lightweight, yet less flexible approach.

Note that you'll have to make sure that your clients don't see
things you don't want them to see (but this applies even more
strongly to a scripting solution, like the PHP example offered)
