converted for what? I hope this is just for user interaction (e.g.
display) and that UTF-8 is still used internally as long as the
user isn't involved. Moreover the locales aren't a system choice,
but a user choice and they are process-dependent (for instance,
I sometimes have an xterm using ISO-8859-1 next to an xterm using
UTF-8, due to limitations of some software).
