any "exhaustive search" of locales would be a VERY BAD THING. There are
...cases..(*cough*) which
different locales simply dont care about. The locale should be
specifically set as part of the property.
I dont see how this would negatively effect clients. If they have a
different locale than the server has set
(per file/directory, not per system!), they would be no worse off than
if they had no checking to begin with.
