Is it correct to always use English locale in this case?  Ref the
reference guide on SQL identifiers:

	  An ordinary identifier must begin with a letter and contain
	  only letters, underscore characters (_), and digits. The
	  permitted letters and digits include all Unicode letters and
	  digits, but Derby does not attempt to ensure that the
	  characters in identifiers are valid in the database's
	  locale.

Should not it be possible to match column names in any locale?
