Subject: LANG=en_GB.UTF-8 by default
Date: Wed, 15 Feb 2012 12:58:52 +0100
as subject says could gentoo change the policy and set an UTF-8 environment by 
default?

http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/utf-8.xml how to do it very well but having it 
already set could have the following two advantages:

1) well utf-8 is everywhere, even the linux weekly newsletter has it in 2012
2) the user need to change, not to create a /etc/env.d/XX-lc, creating a 
standard place where every gentoo install has this settings.

contra?

P.S. would be nice to have a wd_WD.UTF-8 with WD standing for world, just a 
country is so 1900
