It's introducing a new dependency to do something fundamental to Postgres, one
that's larger than all of Postgres.

It would make Postgres inconsistent and less integrated with the rest of the
OS. How do you explain that Postgres doesn't follow the system's
configurations and the collations don't agree with the system collations?
