I just want to mention that I'm doing something like this in the FSVS tests.

I've got a test script that runs the tests for
 * the current locale,
 * an UTF8 locale, and
 * a non-UTF8 locale (these are found via "locale -a | grep").

My Makefile defines an UTF8-string, and a localized string (via "$(shell
date +%b -d2001-01-27)", which, for german locales, conveniently returns
These strings are then used for directory and filenames, contents, and in
lots of other places where something might go wrong.
