It's used for locale-specific case matching in the non-unicode case. But
it looks to me like a bad practice and we could probably remove it.

'C'
>>> re.match('À'.encode('latin1'), 'à'.encode('latin1'), re.IGNORECASE)
>>> re.match('À'.encode('latin1'), 'à'.encode('latin1'), re.IGNORECASE |re.LOCALE)
>>> locale.setlocale(locale.LC_CTYPE, 'fr_FR.ISO-8859-1')
'fr_FR.ISO-8859-1'
>>> re.match('À'.encode('latin1'), 'à'.encode('latin1'), re.IGNORECASE)
>>> re.match('À'.encode('latin1'), 'à'.encode('latin1'), re.IGNORECASE | re.LOCALE)
