Finished. Sorry for the delay I had some trouble understanding how
backend treats the locale stuff (Neil pointed out the path).
Now TM mode is returning strftime() output. It would be nice if in the
future we change this to pg_strftime() but unfortunately the last one is
not i18n. :(

template1=# show lc_time;
lc_time

pt_BR

template1=# select to_char(now(), 'TMDay, DD TMMonth YYYY');
to_char
