I don't know about your other needs, but I can guarantee that 
localization-config depends on perl-base only. It did depend on perl, 
but this has been fixed. Anyway, it was just a suggestion, still I 
believe that in this manner it might be better to use some existing 
package, like l-c, that was designed for this purpose.
  Anyway, out of curiosity, what do you intend to do? Perhaps, your 
script might be useful to more locales other than the ones you 
originally thought of.
