Looks good from here.  I haven't tested them yet, but the
concept looks right to me.

I think we should probably change absolute references.  I don't
mind leaving them in "error", but it would be good to give
the webmaster the flexibility to move them if they wish.

I don't believe this will work in 2.0 since the mime handling
revamp by OtherBill.  I think it is very important that
somebody fixes this in some way, but I'm not going to do it.
The suggested solution was to add a ForceAcceptableLanguage
directive that would cause Apache to use the LanguagePriority
to decide what language to deliver if it can't find an
acceptable variant.

I think you missed a thought here.  Anyway, I am fine
with how it works at the moment.

Another entry for the todo list:

 - Add the config for this to httpd-std.conf.  I believe
   that we should enable it by default.

I'm offline tomorrow. (All day power outage in the building holding
my mail server.  Hrumph!) But I'll take a more detailed look next
