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.

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.
