renaming the locale does not mean the ayc name dies -- we can easily set
up an alias in glibc for it so people can continue to use ayc_PE.  what
matters most i think whether the translated data is mutually intelligible
and have the same basic characteristics.

i.e. look at the content of the ayc_PE file.  if i copy ayc_PE to ayr_PE,
then what in it would be wrong ?  or would the translations/formats still
be (mostly?) correct ?
