I'd rather have zero.  :-)  Anything above that surely warrants an

I don't think this got addressed.  If a nmh-specific locale doesn't fix
the problem then let's not add it.  And if it's only ls's C-locale
collating order that's wanted, then why not Paul's solution of
nearly-all UTF-8, or a ~/bin/ls?  As a user of non-UTF-8 locales for a
long time after the world moved on, it really wasn't that bad switching
to it.  Paul's done the same.  It can be done with exceptions for what
still needs C, not the other way around.

Cheers, Ralph.
