Does this mean that you prefer to have no locale library instead of
this one in Boost?
Artyom likes his design better (as I understand it). He's probably not
the one to write the library you want.
Boost accepts different libraries solving the same problem. Isn't this
library good enough to be such alternative? Especially since there is
no other alternative at all for the moment (or in the foreseeable

It's not that the library is a sloppy work, as I see it. You just have
