    The point is that it should just work WITHOUT requiring people to
    take extra steps.

    Right now we have a problem.  Any 1.2 binary that tries to use locale
    will break.  If you can come up with a solution that makes those binaries
    work without requiring people to set some magic environment variable
    then fine.  If not, then move the location of the citrus locale files.
