Todays updates to:

* Detail issues with the locale module.
* Summarize commentary to date.
   -- Opposition to formatting strings in general
      (preferring a convenience function or PICTURE clause)
   -- Opposition to any non-locale aware approach
* Add APOSTROPHE and non-breaking SPACE to the list of separators.
* Add more links to external references
  (Babel, Excel, ADA, CommonLisp, COBOL, C-Sharp).
* Clarify how proposal II is parsed.
