I'm not an apache 2.0 user, but my reading of the documentation would be that:

	ForceLanguagePriority None

is equivalent to:

	# ForceLanguagePriority <Anything>

i.e. it is a way of disabling this directive. 

Apache directives increasingly have a "null" form which allows them to be disabled. I guess
the logic is that it is better specfically to disable the directive by setting an argument
than to use the old hacker's trick of commenting it out. Probably, this is helpful when the
conf-file is built by a script or some GUI-based configuration tool. Another example is "RewriteLogLevel"
which can be set to 0 - which is equivalent to commenting it out.

NB I haven't checked this - if it is critical (I think it isn't or I *would* check it), please
check this yourself and let us know :-)
