I agree that passing a locale would be nice. However, since I'm told
it is not safe to use multi-byte character sets with finger, I thought
we would not want to provide such an option.
I obviously need to study more about how isprint(3) and friends work.
Maybe there is a good solution hiding in there somewhere.

| Hardcoding locale name like this is really bad practice of
