	hmm.  it makes more sense to do dlopen() then.

	my last question is: how should we enable it and try not to
	put people into trouble by larger footprint.
	i'm thinking about two set of solutions:
	1a. ship libnolocale.a so that binaries with -lnolocale can
	    inhibit multibyte locale stuff
	1b. Makefile fragment (does the same as above)
	2. make options that affects libc build

	which one do people prefer? (not sure if everyone is reading this)
