This is broken.  Locale in general is about external representations.
Try: info libc "chararcter set handling" "generic charset conversion"
to see the kinds of problems you get into if you use it for internal /
conversion purposes.

Are you sure nicolatter is an XIM input manager?

If so, that is _even more disgusting_ than the hack I didn't describe
for kinput2.  X apps should never be dependent on host-local config
files, even the X Consortium eventually figured that out.

Sheesh, you might as well use Windows.  Why bother having a network
protocol at all if you're doing bondage with a single machine like
