[Python-Dev] What is test__locale supposed to test, anyhow?

test__locale, as written, tests that the data we get from nl_langinfo() 
matches the data acquired from localeconv(), but it doesn't actually 
make sure that any part of this data is correct.  Is this intentional?  
Is anybody going to mind if I rewrite this test to check that the 
values are actually *correct*?  This will mean more failures on 
platforms like solaris, where the system locale data is incorrect.
