I think the error-notes confusion is due to some unfortunate
overloading.  On the one hand, anything in that cell is made
available as an envariable for error processing.  On the other
hand, ap_send_error_response() has treated it as a way for
modules to override the default error message.

Both were evidently intended by the change when it was
implemented in May.  I suspect that the correct solution
is to simply remove its special meaning in
If someone wants to make use of the string in an error display,
let 'im use an ErrorDocument to customise the response.

The more I think about this the more I like that solution.
Currently, any module can usurp the text of the error
display page from the core.  I don't think that's appropriate.
