The "locale" module does not affect Unicode operations. That's C locale; I'm talking about concept of Unicode locale, which Python doesn't currently know anything about.

I agree it would be useful to customize the locale of various unicode operations. That's a much broader language-level issue, though, in need of careful design.

As for the useless generic mapping of LATIN CAPITAL LETTER I WITH DOT ABOVE, the idea is there is no LATIN SMALL LETTER I WITH DOT ABOVE so the generic lower casing comes from decomposing the character then lowering the latin one.
