The idea is that eventually we could plug in `localeconv' support
transparently, i.e., the user-visible API would remain the same but it
would become capable of using `localeconv' when `nl-langinfo' is not
available (that would work only for monetary and numeric procedures,

   -1. Introduced `%global-locale' (which is quite handy).

   -2. Changed `make-locale' to use a category list rather than a
       category mask:

         (make-locale (list LC_NUMERIC LC_MESSAGES) "eo_EO")

And I think that's it.
