The lt_LT locale and a few others ones (et_EE and tr_TR) used to sort
upper case letters before lower case ones. Basing the collation on
iso14651_t1 actually changes that. I don't know if the change is
intentional or not.

Debian has a patch from more than 10 years ago that has been very
loosely ported from version to version to add support for
preprocessor-like directives. That way it's possible to add ifdef else
endif directives to support both lower-case-first and upper-case-first
version of iso14651_t1.
