Agreed in principle. The thing that's actually a bit shaky here is
to decide what "upstream" to follow, given that the original maintainer
has retired and there doesn't seem to be active work going on.

I dunno that we need to set up a permanent buildfarm member for this.
I had been thinking in terms of testing every available locale on my
own machines before pushing, but given that the code is pretty static,
do we need to do that repetitively?
