[New-bugs-announce] [issue17659] First weekday

New submission from Izidor Matušov:

There is no way how to figure out the first weekday: Does a week start with Monday or Saturday? (Or any other day?)

According to documentation, module locale doesn't provide this information. Module calendar uses European convention (Monday is the first weekday).

Purpose of this issue is to have a way how to return first weekday (Monday, Sunday, etc)
