Don't worry, R5.91RS doesn't deal with locales and text collation [0],
and if it did, we'd just have to provide a wrapper for our API.
MzScheme has had a similar API for some time also [1].

I've written a wrapper for `nl_langinfo ()' as part of the `i18n' module
(it is necessary to internationalize SRFI-19 for instance).  This also
required the implementation of `scm_from_string ()', a generalized
version of `scm_from_locale_string ()' that uses `iconv ()'.

I'll write about this later and try to address the other issues you
raised at the same time.
