"The point of having
% a separate locale is only for PO translations, which have a lot of social
% support and are very appreciated by the Valencian-speaking community."

Since it's a new locale, they simply used the Latin-1 version with Euro
symbol to start with, which is a good move. Most of Europe is stuck
with having ISO-8859-1 as default, which does not include the Euro
symbol. Then again: most Unix installations use UTF-8 nowadays anyway.
