There's a sneaky bit where the code does '_setlocale = setlocale', and
the second setlocale() definition uses _setlocale.  So PyChecker is
correct in reporting that setlocale() is being redefined, but this
can't be removed without more extensive changes.  I'd leave that
decision up to the maintainer of locale.py.
