That is a big hammer!  But today I prefer to use UTF-8 character sets
and the associated machinery.  It is nice to see people's names and
other things as they were intended.  Using LC_ALL turns everything
off.  Which of course is fine to lock to a very traditional Unix

I prefer this:

  export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
  export LC_COLLATE=C

That way I get the good parts (charsets) but not the bad parts
(collating / sorting).  People's definitions of good and bad here are
obviously open to interpretation.
