Besides locale-aware, it'll need to be style-guide-aware so that it
knows whether you want MLA, Chicago, Strunk & White, NYT, Gregg,
Mrs. Johnson from 9th grade English class, or any of a dozen or two
others.  And that's just for US English.  [For all I know, most of the
ones I listed agree completely on "title case", but I doubt it.]
