Yes, this is a good idea. For comparison, I do it this way, for Apache:

        RedirectMatch 404 .*/\.svn(/|$)

Doesn't need mod_rewrite.

Enhance for CVS directories if needed.

I prefer to make them return 404 Not Found instead of 403 Forbidden.
No need to give the world any indication that there's a working copy
at all.
