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. ~harring
