I really doubt that the speed cost is too high to pay. That the
functions are not blessed by ANSI seems a shame, but then I don't know
anyone who writes purely ANSI C.
On the other hand, I'd probably leave this out as setlocale(3) will
only support the 'C' locale. (Per -current source from late August).
Also, the cat* functions are only using LANG, and not LC_ALL et al.
Looks like there is a project here. Is there any more locale related
code in the 4.4-lite release?
P.S. From my quick perusal of the "POSIX Programmer's Guide" and
"The C Standard Library" I figure nobody standardised the tools
for building and manipulating locales?
