   All this sounds nice, but I am afraid the job is not for me. Actually I
am very new to Postgres and SQL world. I started to learn SQL 3 months ago;
I started to play with Postgres 2 months ago. I started to hack Potsgres
sources (about locale) a little more than a month ago.

   It would be nice to test it, providing that it wouldn't break existing
code. Our site is running hundreds CGIs that rely on current locale support
in Postgres...
