the vast majority of locales leverage translit_neutral (by way of copying
i18n).  the exceptions are:
	az_AZ
	crh_UA
	km_KH
	ku_TR
	tr_CY
	tr_TR
	tt_RU@iqtelif

all except km_KH eventually copy tr_TR.  seems like it should be possible
to rebase these two on top of translit_neutral (or at least i18n), but i
have no idea why they didn't in the first place.  considering how hacky
km_KH has been (looks like it was copied from lo_LA and then hacked to
bits to get a little km_KH), i wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't meant
to be by itself.
