Yeah, I'm going remove that and test it out...that message may be bogus
at this point - it was put there a year and a half ago by Jack, and I'm
reasonably sure that no one's tested it since (and I don't believe it
anyhow - it's more like Python's support is bad - MacOS X's support for
locale is pretty good). We've definitely got something strange going
on with locale, however, since I can't make it work at all in python,
but it works fine outside of Python.
