In any standard Unix system, the locale is process-dependent.
So, anyway, if you consider the locale, the source can change
from one call to another. So, considering the locale only is
definitely not a good idea.

No, it doesn't work. If the locale changes (what is allowed on
any standard Unix system), a "svn up" breaks the working copy.
