Meta refresh is never, ever, acceptable.  It buggers up browsers.

Looking up the thread, an altogether better solution would be
to use mod_asis to generated external redirects from the
content-negotiated indexes.

You should still of course enable users to override that choice.
For example a visitor may be fluent in both languages, or may be
traveling, and using a hotel or library's browser configured with
different preferences to their own.
