A very cool directive for antique browsers...

Allows port 80 to server 8859-1, 8082 to serve 8859-2 etc...
I think that need is (pretty much) gone.

Equally obsurce directive, tells us which browsers use/misunderstand
which charset options.

Of *COURSE* we need this (think default src-charset to iconv).
Think in terms of this... if Joe is from England, he expects 'his'
website to be written in 8859-1.  That won't be true of Jane in
Scandinavia, or Ralph in Croatia.  I would expect this is more of
a global, and directory local option.

That's what we hope :-)
