You are mistaken and it seems you did not read all of what I wrote.  I
_do_ plan to use all the new locale features.  However I'm not stupid
enough to try to use them on my SS1 or VAXen or whatever other ancient
and limited hardware I might find find the desire to resurrect.  I do
other stupid things on those machines, but I don't need even the NLS
support I have on them now.  I am smart enough to make those intelligent
choices about where I can afford the bloat and where I can do better
things instead, and I am skilled enough to implement those choices
despite whatever may be done by default in NetBSD to foil my efforts.
