It *would* be nice if the world agreed on using UTF-8 as a universal
encoding for all text. However:
"""If the LANG environment variable is not set or is set to the empty
string, the implementation-defined default locale shall be used."""
But I think the operating system should set the default, not the
application. On my Ubuntu system I see the traditional ASCII English
$ (unset LC_ALL LC_COLLATE LANG LANGUAGE GDM_LANG; locale)
