The question is which should be the default? For me it's better to have
LANG=es_AR, just because I will have REAL string ordering in a query like this:

SELECT varfield FROM sometable ORDER BY varfield;

That would work great with 'C' locale if varfield didn't contain caracters like á,
é, í, ó, ú, ñ.

select 'mmarques' || '@' || 'unl.edu.ar' AS email;
