I'm still confused about what getlocale() is supposed to do. Why do we attempt to return an encoding anyway if the underlying setlocale call doesn't return one? Is getlocale() not supposed to a simple wrapper over the C locale? If not, how is one supposed to get the encoding associated with the C locale?

The old alias table code meant that the encoding returned from getlocale() could be related to or completely unrelated to the actual C locale. Misunderstanding this results in issues like #29571.
