I received confirmation of my copyright assignment today, so if
someone wants to apply the patch, that would be great.

Additionally, if it is applied the documentation should probably be
updated too. There's a bit under General Variables that should read
something like:

On MS-Windows and OS X, if LANG is not already set in the environment
when Emacs starts, Emacs sets it based on the system-wide default
language. This can be set in the 'Regional Settings' Control Panel on
some versions of MS-Windows and in the 'Language and Region' System
Preference on OS X.

Should I recreate the patch with that change in it?
