If you want the full language negotiation done by apache (checking
priorities, etc), then your meta-refresh hack may indeed be the best
idea. (I almost never suggest that, since it is much better to do
proper HTTP redirects. But this is a special case. I don't know a
clean way to get mod_negotiation to generate an external redirect.)

If you just want to do a simple scan of the browser's accept-language,
you can use mod_rewrite:

RewriteCond %{HTTP:Accept-Language} ^pl$
RewriteRule ^/blog/?$ http://yoursite.example.com/blog/pl/ [R,L]
RewriteRule ^/blog/?$ http://yoursite.example.com/blog/en/ [R]
