In the long run, however, it would be good to have correctly sorted
indices in the non-English manuals.  AFAIK, and assuming that
`texindex` is eventually capable of doing that, we will need UTF-8
locales for that, because virtually all programs, irrespective of the
OS, rely on a platform's locale data for collation support.

If you ever have to work with locales, I strongly recommend to read
the excellent documentation of Perl's locale support, which
essentially covers all aspects you will ever encounter, and most of
its information is not related to Perl only.

Interesting. Indeed, I didn't find a Perl library that would
support locales without them being present on the system. However,
all of (Perl) (Python) (Rust)

support user-provided collation tailoring tables.
