Maybe it is, if you treat the .htaccess as its own ExtFile.

I'd have your extfile creation form submit to a script that 
adds two ExtFiles, one for the "main" file and one for the .htaccess.

but then, you probably don't want the .htaccess to be visible
in zope as a normal ExtFile... I don't know what you can do about
that.  Maybe create a new Product that subclasses ExtFile
and manages the .htaccess files behind the scenes.
