I’m now convinced that an implicit setlocale(LC_ALL, "") is the right
thing for ‘master’.

For 2.0, though, this brings us back to the hack I proposed at the
beginning of this thread, namely trying to honor LC_CTYPE without
actually calling setlocale, so that command-line arguments are suitably

Could Gnulib’s get_charset_aliases be exported?
