Newlib (cygwin's underlying C library) does not really support locales; it
is hard-wired to the "C"/"POSIX" locale. So even if there were a locale
tool, it would be pretty boring. But since POSIX requires locale(1) and
localedef(1) as utilities, it would be nice if somebody contributed them.
Gettext and libintl help in some regards, such as LC_MESSAGES, although I
can't say that I have any experience with using that part of i18n
(unfortunately, since English is my native language, I am already all too
comfortable with the "C" locale).
Life is short - so eat dessert first!
