Bug#186996: suggestion: en_US.ISO-8859-15 as default

Package: locales
Version: 2.3.1-14
Severity: wishlist

-- System Information
Debian Release: testing/unstable
Architecture: i386
Kernel: Linux rudolf.stuttgart 2.4.19 #16 SMP Fri Mar 14 16:34:42 CET 2003 i686
Locale: LANG=en_US.ISO-8859-15, LC_CTYPE=en_US.ISO-8859-15

Versions of packages locales depends on:
ii  debconf                       1.2.32     Debian configuration management sy
ii  libc6 [glibc-2.3.1-14]        2.3.1-14   GNU C Library: Shared libraries an


I'd propose to set the default for locales to en_US.ISO-8859-15. As far,
as I understand, this won't cause any problems for English speakers, and
it enables French and German special chars at the same time. 

Thanks in advance,
Yours Rudolf Weeber
