If nothing is configured (i.e. none of LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE or LANG are set in the environment), then C reports the locale as "C". It's probably worthwhile for me to add a Background section to the PEP that explains the behaviour of ``setlocale`` at the C level, as that's the source of the majority of the problems, as well as the key mechanism used to implement the locale coercion.
