I'm not sure the locale per database solution is a silver bullet.
With this, still we cannot solve the issue, for example, a LATIN1
encoded text includes several languages at a time, thus it needs
multiple locales. Or we cannot have multiple different language
columns, tables at a time because it requires multiple locales. Same
thing can be said to Unicode too. After all it seems a half baked
solution to me.
