Don't you want to simply set LC_ALL? That's defined to override all
category-specific LC_* environment variables, including any new ones
that might be introduced. From POSIX 2003, Base Definitions:

5653 LC_ALL This variable shall determine the values for all locale
categories. The value of
5654 the LC_ALL environment variable has precedence over any of the other
5655 environment variables starting with LC_ (LC_COLLATE, LC_CTYPE,
5656 LC_MESSAGES, LC_MONETARY, LC_NUMERIC, LC_TIME) and the LANG
5657 environment variable.
