Definitely agreed.  The locale-related code is *the* pain point when it
comes to MSVC things.  And each time we add support for a new version of
MSVC there is always something different happening and breaking.  There
has never been any discussion around ResolveLocaleName() though.  A
downside is that this would increase the minimal version support bar on
Windows.  Still that would be worth a serious look.
