Don't consider Accept-Language when generating a cache key

Currently, Django makes different cache keys for different Accept-Language headers. But different Accept-Language headers may be resolved into the same language. For example, see the following Accept-Language headers collected in my site for last 30 minutes:
- ko, en
- ko-KR, en-US
It makes the cache system inefficient for multilingual sites. Since there is utils.cache._i18n_cache_key_suffix, it is unnecessary and redundant to include Accept-Language headers in a cache key. We should ignore them in utils.cache.learn_cache_key.
Note that not adding "Vary: Accept-Language" from the first place in middleware.locale.process_response is not a good solution because of proxy servers.
The attached patch removes Accept-Language from headerlist before generating a cache key.
If the patch is rejected, users like me should at least be able to ignore them.
