Thanks.

Line 646 in the alias table is wrong:

    'utf_8':                        'UTF8',

should read:

    'utf_8':                        'UTF-8',

I wonder why this wasn't reported earlier - did the GlibC change
the UTF-8 spelling at some point ? I do vaguely remember that I
had to remove the hyphen due to problems with setlocale() not
accepting 'UTF-8', but that was at the time I wrote that part
of locale.py, i.e. many years ago.

It doesn't appear to be necessary anymore. I checked on openSUSE
10.3 and 11.3. Both work fine with 'UTF-8' and 'UTF8'.
