Add basic support for influencing language selection via cookies.
The UI for language selection in browsers is rarely used or known about by visitors so websites need to provide a way for visitors to influence content negotiation using the website itself in addition to the browser. Setting a cookie is the simplest option for us as the URLs don't change. The GDPR does not apply and to satisfy the EU cookie law we can include some explanatory text around the form that sets the cookie. Visitors should not get their language cookie changed when other folks link them to URLs for other languages and search engines should not set language cookies at all. Using POST requests ensures each cookie is only set explictly. Since Apache mod_rewrite cannot inspect POST data, we use URLs instead. The default cookie lifetime is about one month (60*24*7*4 minutes). <CAKTje6EzfE89jBqpLQu1_a3ybYkV7pPcquKzQb6Uz8uu=pGudA@mail.gmail.com> <firstname.lastname@example.org> https://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/content-negotiation.html#exceptions
