There's a wrong assumption here: glib applications on Linux use UTF-8
regardless of locale. That's the part I have a problem with: the assumption
that the locale will correctly specify the encoding to use for OS APIs on
modern Linux systems.

It's simply not always true: some Linux distros would be better handled
like OS X, where we always use UTF-8, regardless of what the locale says.
