Follow-up Comment #4, bug #21062 (project pspp):

>In deference to pspp's origins, I've decided to use American

My thought was that, as in the Linux kernel, each developer would simply
spell words as he preferred, and then people with different preferences could
use locali[sz]ation to adjust to taste.  But I can't complain about this
resolution either, as long as you are also satisfied with it.

>Those (like myself) who use neither en_GB nor en_US by default 
>will probably wish to use a command similar to export 

Hmm.  I didn't reali[sz]e that there were Australia-specific forms of
technical language, but of course it makes sense that there would be.  If it's
not too much trouble, would you mind giving an example of a difference, simply
for my personal enlightenment?

>Btw, I want to do a major shake up about the way we handle i18n,
>but this can wait until after the release.

OK.  I think that the acceptance of ctype_l and friends into relevant
standards should make this easier than it would have been say a year ago.
