[Bug libc/2800] CP1252 usable in all locales supporting ISO-8859-1 or ISO-8859-15

------- Additional Comments From jakub at redhat dot com  2006-06-19 14:09 -------
Not all possible locale/charset combinations, especially extremely rarely
(in Linux) used ones such as *.CP125{0,2}, need to be in localedata/SUPPORTED.
In fact, I'd say that in these days only UTF-8 charset should be added there.
glibc includes the (POSIX mandated) localedef utility, so anyone who wishes to
use any of the locales in non-default charactersets is just one command away
from creating them.
Every addition to localedata/SUPPORTED means wasting usually from hundreds to
thousands of kilobytes of diskspace.
