-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. :-<)
