The setlocale call would be a good way.  Maybe the charset tables
could be reinitialized in scm_setlocale (when setting LC_ALL or
LC_CTYPE).  I suppose that'd be moderately helpful, and would make
char-alphabetic? etc match how 1.6 worked.  But I guess really the
notion of what a character represents beyond ascii isn't specified
