I'm not sure that makes much sense either. The only possible reason to
do this that I can think of is mounting a hard drive that was created a
completely different codepage compared to the default codepage. Even
then, I'm still not sure that the intervening layers could handle that.

No harm gained in supporting it of course.

This is aside from the problem that I don't think setlocale() gives you
enough information about codepages used for mounted filesystems. Aka old
Shift-JIS FAT drives you need to mount for some bizarre reason. (or
indeed some other complicated scenario)
