Multiple language efforts?

I'm wondering if anyone has other options for dealing with multiple language
content management. The "obvious", but not very appealing, solutions are to
have separate logical content trees, whether on the same server or not, and
whether in parallel directory trees or in the same directories. A suggestion
was recently made to me that it would be nice if the browsers could select a
"preferred" language, and retrieve that if available, else retrieve the
default. I know that something similar is already possible with respect to
images, but I don't think it's really used --- the server doesn't send back
the embedded images unless the browser asks for them anyhow. Thoughts?
