Also, providing welcome pages for various languages makes it very likely
that a new user will want to put up their own page, so they edit
"index.html.en", see it change for them, and think they are done. Then
random other people come along with different language settings and still
see the default page.  The Apache user won't necessarily know they also
have to remove index.html.* or to create their page as index.html...
