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)
