Wouldn't we have to clear *all* of these variables to be sure?

The bigger question is exactly how we expect this stuff to interact with
pg_regress' --no-locale switch.  We already do clear all these variables
when --no-locale is specified.  I am wondering just what --locale is
supposed to do, and whether selectively lobotomizing the LC stuff has
any real use at all.
