You look at ISO-4217? IIRC, YUN is obsolete currency symbol.
In addition, Google search says 'Yugoslavian Dinar YUM' hits over 1000,
'Yugoslavian Dinar YUN' hits only 50.
If YUN is more appropriate, then we should correct locale/iso-4217.def.
Because generating sr_YU locale complaints the LC_MONETARY difference
between iso-4217.def and sr_YU/sr_YU@cyrillic.
BTW, I don't know the sense N of YU'N' means "New".
