Thanks very much for your contribution.  Here are a few comments:

- Always use unified diff format (diff -u).  We find it much easier to

- The languages that are currently included in httpd.conf are all the ones
where we have a corresponding "welcome" page (index.html.xx).  This should
no longer be necessary, since the welcome pages use a type-map file rather
than multi-views.

- Personally, I don't see the need to list all languages (or all major
languages) in the config file.  People who need a specific language should
be consulting the relevant standards to find the correct codes.  I would
like to see less stuff in the language section rather than more.

Thanks again.
