Re: i18n requires setlocale

I think asking for language + country separately makes sense, since
those are covariant, but not 100% dependendent on each other.  From
that, we should be able to construct a sane locale, choose a keymap

Adding support for priorities in some way would also be cool, though I
am not sure how to implement this just yet.
