If we do go with the update-the-docs approach, perhaps we should
consider still including a locale file in env.d, explicitly set the
default there, and then have the UTF-8 entries (perhaps a few common
ones) commented out in that file?  Then changing to utf-8 is just a
matter of swapping the comment marks.

That at least standardizes the approach taken for new installs and is
more instructive.  We already do something similar with locale.gen.
