It's a high price to pay if you want to people from CVS world to use your
tool. Why not read the locale settings from global configuration files?
For example, my debian gnu/linux system is configured with:

        en_US.ISO-8859-15 ISO-8859-15
        fi_FI@euro ISO-8859-15

But svn tool doesn't work with ISO-8859-15 names! Only a small amount of
code per supported operating system is required to handle this.
