I was just checking to see if this was something that would be trivial to do or
not, and it appears to already be done.(for the meta charset tags, the other
meta tags there really is no point, unless for maybe something like
x-ua-compatible, but we don't send that)

The html5 spec is probably better for what happens in practise (
), however both say that the http headers take precedence.

But anyways, back to the point. The meta tag is first in the head if we're in
html5 mode ($wgHtml5=true) (which isn't true on wikipedia, but take a look at which does have it true)

Do the placement of meta tags on the match your
expectations? If so I'd recommend wontfixing this because its mostly a cosmetic
change (as far as i am aware, meta charset tags are ignored if an http
content-type header is specified, which is it for 'pedia) and we're going to be
switching to html5 mode sooner or later.
