On a related issue: the locale certainly could e.g. it changes the  
collation order of accented characters.

On the other side, you have the customer and/or user, and they tend to  
do what we call "automating the pain." They say, "What is it we're  
doing now? How would that look if we automated it?" Whereas, what the  
design process should properly be is one of saying, "What are the  
goals we're trying to accomplish and how can we get rid of all this  
task crap?"
