httpd.conf-dist has the wrong language code and MIME charset  for Korean 

           Summary: httpd.conf-dist has the wrong language code and MIME
                    charset  for Korean
           Product: Apache httpd-1.3
           Version: HEAD
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: jshin@jtan.com


httpd.conf-dist has the following lines: 

    # Italian (it) - Korean (kr) - Norwegian (no) - Norwegian Nynorsk (nn)
    # Portugese (pt) - Luxembourgeois* (ltz)
 
    AddLanguage kr .kr
    AddCharset ISO-2022-KR .iso-kr

'kr' is NOT the language code for Korean BUT the country code for Republic of
Korea(South Korea). 'ko' is the language code for Korean. Moreover, I can bet a
million buck that there's NOT a single web page written in ISO-2022-KR.
ISO-2022-KR WAS (NOT any more) used for Korean internet email in 1990's but was
NEVER used for web publishing. EUC-KR and Windows-949(MS IIS incorrectly refers
to it as ksc5601.1987-0) are two most common MIME charset(Character Encoding)
used for Korean document with UTF-8 catching up recently. Therefore the above
lines should be replaced by

  AddLanguage ko .ko
  AddCharset EUC-KR .euckr

I had reported this  a couple of times before Apache bugzilla was set up but
I've just found that it's still not fixed. It'd be nice if this could be fixed.
