I do fully understand that UTF-8 locale files consume a bit more disk
space, but I think it is very important symbolically that at least the
following ones are installed by default...
While we're on the subject, Solaris 8 supports the following UTF-8
locales, and it would be a minor nicety if GNU/Linux supported these
locales too. That would make it a bit easier for people to migrate
ko_KR.UTF-8 (an alias for ko.UTF-8)
zh_CN.UTF-8 (an alias for zh.UTF-8)
