I haven't been following the discussion about C.UTF-8 closely, but
curiously, for me at least, this test program shows that
setlocale(LC_ALL, "") fails with LANG=C.UTF-8 (so that doesn't
actually seem to be a valid locale, although if it's the default it
probably doesn't make much difference), but this means that a
subsequent setlocale(LC_ALL, NULL) just returns "C"

What version of Cygwin 1.7 are you using? The change to newlib, which allows to specify C.UTF-8 as locale is from 2009-09-29, so Cygwin 1.7.0-62 from 2009-10-03 allows to specify this locale.

The change which makes C.UTF-8 Cygwin's default locale is from
2009-10-09, so this change is only in Cygwin from CVS, or in developer
snapshots from past that date.

Thanks for the clarification.
