i'm not sure if it's a good idea because
- uselocale is acutally being used by third party code in the wild.
- uselocale is in standard.
- sometimes uselocale is the only choice.
eg. when calling a library which internally uses locale-sensitive functions.

the size of libc is the only reason to have it optional i'm aware of.
but i even don't know how much it makes libc smaller/bigger.
