But this patch does not make it harder to debug programs, since it is already
the case that macros like LC_ALL are typically unavailable in the debug info.
<locale.h> has "#define LC_ALL __LC_ALL", and unless you use something like
gcc -g3, gdb won't see the LC_ALL.
If you like, I can rework the patch so that macros like __LC_ALL are
available in the debug info, but I doubt whether any normal users would
care so I don't see the point.
A better possibility is to rework this patch so that LC_ALL is typically
available in the debug info, while still conforming to C99 and POSIX.
This would require changing locale.h as well. I can submit that patch
if you prefer.
(The patches for math.h and fenv.h -- bug 3439 -- are in a different category;
I'll look at them a bit later.)
