Guessing you didn't get the part about "no warning should be put in" 
that everyone stated?  You're ignoring that this message also will 
make users think that switching their locale will magically fix 
programs that chuck encoding errors (validly so, if not particularly 
user friendly) when running into improperly encoded files (regardless 
of locale).

This locale crap doesn't belong in the tree, mild warning or not- do 
not add it.  Take it up to the council if you really think everyone 
else is wrong and still want it.
