Yes, maybe swap en;q=0.7 and en-GB;q=0.8

The problem to solve is to tell me how I should implement
this... ;-)  The example can be simpler and more obscure:

     Accept-Language: da, en-gb;q=0.8, en;q=0.7, *

What does that mean ?  Is it just broken, and implementations
can do whatever they like, e.g. ignore "*" ?  Or always use
a qvalue 0.001 for "*" no matter what the "wanted" value is ?

Or does this mean "I want anything, with en as worst case" ?
