I'm hijacking the situation to further my own internationalist agenda.
Sorry about that. :-)

This brings up something else to mind too, though. Let me pick a couple
of points from the following:
In general, we are headed for:
* "State of the art" tools [...]
2. Platform independent userland
Citrus, wide-char curses (SoC integration?), collation, localized
printf with positional parameter support, time & currency
support, etc. NetBSD has a global user and developer base and
our i18n support should reflect that.
My own snarky comments would be that 1: expecting US-ASCII is no longer
considered state of the art, anywhere, by anyone; and 2: that us in the
global user base can still hardly see our own reflection here.
(Yes, I realize that NFS is probably not a "tool" in the sense used in the
roadmap description. Still.)
So I'd say Jukka Marin might as well file a PR (too).
