-current supports I18N partly.  (setlocale(3) and multibyte/wide char
functions.)  The I18n part of NetBSD is steadily being developed by a
few developers.  Its design and implementation are really promising, I
believe, however, what really lacks is documentation.  I might once
say that I tried to work on the document about this, but nearly
nothing has been archieved. (I failed to understand Citrus codes. :-<)
