setlocale(LC_CTYPE, "English_United Kingdom.65001")

will return null (and not change anything) because it doesn't like the
combination of the locale and that encoding (UTF-8).

setlocale(LC_CTYPE, "English_United Kingdom.1252")

will return "English_United Kingdom.1252" and set the locale accordingly
because WIN1252 is a valid encoding for that locale. Similarly, LATIN1
and numerous other encodings are accepted in combination with that locale.

Should initdb allow any combination that setlocale() accepts, or should
it *only* accept the default encoding for the specified locale?
