From where I'm sitting, the only ebuild that has any business telling
me to change (or suggesting how) locale is glibc. Especially when
we're talking about a warning that will be in 7.6% of the versions
in the tree.
That's pretty freaking spammy... end result will be people switching
(for better or worse) to stop seeing the complaints.
It's basically annoying people into changing to partially
sidestep a couple of bugs, instead of fixing the issue- and that's the
wrong course of action.
