05:53 idiosyncrat_ rns: you may remember we discussed locales in Kollos and I was determined to force a "C" locale.
05:53 idiosyncrat_ It turns out there is no portable thread-safe way to override the locale.
05:54 idiosyncrat_ So I've decided to follow Lua's default in (in general) honoring locale (within Lua)
05:55 idiosyncrat_ IIRC you didn't my forcing of "C" locale in Lua anyway, so you'll probably be happy with this. :-)
05:57 idiosyncrat_ Where difficulties arise, I'll handle them case by case.  For example, in the test suite, I know that there are no other threads, so I can use os.setlocale() to set "C" locale as needed.
05:57 idiosyncrat_ Good night!
