I made a testrun and found the following LCIDs/locales which have a
three letter language code, instead of a two letter code.  Where can I
find the corresponding POSIX codes?  Apparently 2-letter ISO639-1
codes are not supposed to be created for new languages which are added
to the 3-letter ISO639-2 codes.  So I only found the few which still
got a 639-1 code.  How are the others handled?
