That's actually quite simple to implement and even simplifies the code
quite a bit.
Martin, Christian: please give this image a try.
It's not completely polished, but it has the basic idea. Please test a full
install as I've not yet done so.
Note that the "old" default locale will still be used for the installation
itself (i.e. en_US), but should set what you select for the installed
system. Possibly we could change that, but then we would then need to
limit the locales allowed as default to UTF-8 based locales.
But maybe it's time to drop support for non-UTF-8 locales altogether?
