It hurt to say I do always underestimate pills of humor I (try to)
insert in emails.
At the time of the first post I didn't knew of a C.utf-8 possibility
(or that would have been my choice) but otherwise the most logical is
en_US.

Another thing I do really don't know yet is how this reflect on
file-system paths.
File system is safe because it's encoding agnostic, it eats all but \0
and "/" right?
But how do applications react to a change in the LC_* variables?
