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?
