Bah, Dave beat me to it by a minute or two. But yes, that's the one thing
that I can see is still there. And yes, it's always been that way.

I'm not against stripping the .1252 part, but I don't know what the clean
way to do that is, unless we want to drop it for all locales (which may or
may not be a good thing).

I specifically don't support rewriting it to .65001, becase that will
generate a locale name that's not valid. The same argument about clean way
applies here :-)
