Another encoding modules, for example, an encoding module which can
handle any codeset represented by charmap format. (this is required
to support localedef correctly).
Also, special LC_TIME module which can handle programmable date
representation may make sense.
Perhaps special LC_COLLATE module which can handle programablle
collation order, too.
