> In Turkish, a lower case dotted i upper cases to an upper case dotted i  which I'll call(Ui).
If you build derby on a machine with a Turkish locale, javacc will uppercase keywords like
"insert" to (Ui)INSERT, instead of INSERT. Derby in general doesn't work and you'll see many
odd test failures.
> Just reminded of this bit of lore with all the locale issues lately, so filing a Jira.
> Note: Derby (when built on a non-turkish machine) always uppercases in Locale.ENGLISH,
so identifiers like itable will always uppercase to ITABLE, no matter the Locale.  This consistent
uppercasing allows databases to be moved around the world without trouble but does cause culturally
incorrect uppercasing in Turkey.
