"Like C" could also mean that ASCII characters (and probably all
characters) are collated in code-point order (so, for example, all
uppercase ASCII letters come before all lowercase). Or do you think the
right way to achieve that minimal extension of the C locale to UTF-8 is to
set only LC_CTYPE and not LC_COLLATE or LC_ALL?
