You mean setlocale(LC_ALL, "")?  Which really means "Just take everything
from the environment", right?

Sigh.  I don't know.  I see arguments for both.  Personally, to me this
is another argument that we shouldn't be doing this AT ALL, but that bridge
has been crossed already :-/  I was only pointing out that if the concern
is really that changing your locale messes up your prefered collation,
fixing that is trivial.
