Description

Linux seems to name locales FOO.utf8 were we use FOO.UTF-8. We should deliver compat links or the like, for code that deals in names rather than just taking the one from the environment, and for anything passing locale names across the network.

Garrett was there a reason you didn't do this? I have this nagging memory of there being one
