Is _that_ the deal, then?  There is such a thing as a "system default locale"
that does not show up in my environment variables?

...while I agree that having the default locale be other than 'C' or 'POSIX' (whichever is appropriate) seems idiotic...

If so, then that is what
I want to change.  Having ``[a-z]*'' match _any_ capitalized names is, in my
completely unhumble opinion, nuts.

...you do know about using '[[:lower:]]' instead of '[a-z]', right?

Don't read this. What did I just tell you? Why are you still reading?
