I think the MT ctype tests just need to exercise a representative
sample of multi-byte encodings (i.e., MB_CUR_MAX between 1 and
MB_LEN_MAX). There already is some code in the test suite to find
locales that use these encodings, although it could be made more
efficient. I don't know how useful rw_fnmatch() will turn out to
be in finding these codesets since their names don't matter.
