Okay, I got it now. Thanks for the explanation.

With 'namespace' I meant only the module when the locale is changed, so 
it not affects other scripts that run at the same time on the system. I 
misunderstood locale as being some system-wide 'registry' which 
remembers the changes in it. (have some vague, bad memories about 
changing locale in an ASP application... :-)

Thank you,
