 (If there's another way to submit patches, please do tell. :))

 So I've written this patch that simplifies locale_data::parse greatly.


 '''It does allow invalid locale names''' like (en.UTF-8_at_eruo_US) to be
 parsed in to its correct components, but since it's an internal API that
 doesn't seem to matter.

 It's now case-sensitive. '''Which required a change in the unit tests to
 pass.''' It'd be trivial to fix this (one line of code when appending the
 character), but I personally desire this behaviour as it means I can get
 out what I put in to Boost.Locale via my code. It doesn't seem to break
 anything and the unit tests and/or documentation for the most part don't
 indicate it's important.
