It would be nice to get a review for the newlocale() patch as a bunch of
broken high-profile applications can't deal with the existance of *_l
without newlocale(), but mbsnrtowcs is not that critical.

Check the code in citrus_ctype_template.h for mbsrtowcs, specifically,
the call to _FUNCNAME(init_state). That is required:

"If conversion stopped due to reaching a terminating null character, and
if dst is not a null pointer, the resulting state described shall be the
initial conversion state"

and this part is missing from Nozaki-san's implementation?
