Really?  So you are saying that 'ls' now sorts differently in UTF-8
locales on Fedora 28?  That is, it no longer ignores punctuation in
file names?  Doesn't that cause user outcry?

This is backwards: Windows needs enu_USA, not en_US.UTF-8 (which is
not supported on Windows).

So none of this now works on Fedora 28?  That's too bad, don't you
think?  Why did they change the collation order?
