Alexander Belopolsky <belopolsky at users.sourceforge.net> added the comment:

Another issue that may be worth revisiting is whether or not it is OK for _tkinter to set the locale.

21.2.2. For extension writers and programs that embed Python

Extension modules should never call setlocale(), except to find out what the current locale is.
