Pre-empting POSIX

For some time now I've been cursing the braindead way that locale
information is dealt with by POSIX.  Reading some of the glibc
development archives however it seems that this is planned to be
addressed in future versions, and libc already implements (but does
not document) them.

What do people think about using the newlocale, uselocale, querylocale
etc functions from /usr/include/locale.h ?

On the down side it'll mean that non GNU builds of PSPP will lack
internationalisation.  On the up side it'll make the job of writing
the code a lot easier and less error prone.
