It makes sense for locales other than C, but not for C. Maybe C should
not be included in the list. Then if only the C locale is selected, the
question will not be displayed, and "None" will go through to the
postinst which will not modify /etc/environment.

(As an aside, locales also adds a blank line at the top of
/etc/environment before the LANG line if that file is empty. And if I
select a default locale from the list, then reconfigure it again and
choose None, it does not remove my old selection from /etc/environment.)
