Would moving this functionality to the locale module make the issues any easier to fix?
You could delegate it to the C library, so: yes.
I hope you don't suggest delegating it to the C locale functions. Do you?
Yes, I do. Why do you hope I don't?
Because we all know how locale is a pile of cr*p, both in specification and in implementations. Our unit tests for it are a clear proof of that.
Actually, I remember you saying that locale should ideally be replaced with a wrapper around the ICU library.
