With a window in the shower or tub, the beauty of the light is worth-while! I would hesitate to have anyone brick over a window in the shower--especially if it is the ONLY window in the bathroom.
In our last house, we had a window in our shower. It was so beautiful, but we had a system for keeping water out of the window: 3M hooks and a small shower curtain. Protecting the window became really important after we had to have the window repaired. The seal was failing, and inside the window pains was water from the shower. It looked sort-of like this, only with an inch of water at the bottom (inside the glass):
It makes me laugh now, because I just had no idea that the seal could fail, and was so surprised that the previous owners of that house hadn't been protecting the window. It was an inexpensive fix, so lesson learned :)
There are so many ways to protect that window:
