It should also be noted that there are weirdnesses involved with running 
multiple locales on the same machine.  For example, the 'pargs' command, which 
prints the arguments that were passed to a process when it was started, will 
belch errors when it is running in a locale different than the one it is being 
asked to enumerate the arguments for, even when there are no characters that it 
has to provide escapes for in its output.  I find this more than a little
