So you want a translation feature without any further interpretation? Or

What about an option to enable this variant behavior? What do you think

In the thread Greg linked, he submitted a patch back in 2009 to
implement `shopt -s safelocale`.

Yeah, I don't think that name's particularly descriptive, either.
