Hmm, I'm guessing these probably shouldn't work:

[EMAIL PROTECTED]:~$ setlc "Japanese_Japan.28605"
[EMAIL PROTECTED]:~$ setlc "Japanese_Japan.28595"
[EMAIL PROTECTED]:~$ setlc "Russian_Russia.1252"
[EMAIL PROTECTED]:~$ setlc "Russian_Russia.28591"

1252 == WIN1252
28591 == LATIN1
28605 == LATIN9
28595 == ISO8859-5 (Cyrillic)
28597 == ISO8859-7 (Greek)

In fact, it looks like it'll allow me to use anything thats installed,
regardless of whether they're liekly to be compatible.  So much for
trusting setlocale() :-(
