Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 52439] It should be possible to treat errors in .htaccess as nonfatal

That's for the server admin to determine.  The current situation can also lead
to security issues where AllowOverride.

Posting an explanation from someone who runs hosting and is concerned about

- We currently disallow FollowSymLinks due to security reasons
- We do allow SymLinksIfOwnerMatch which is enough for most CMS and other
systems used on our platform to work
- Many systems ship with .htaccess files containing "Options +FollowSymLinks"
or "Options None" causing errors
