I'm curious what the reason for this was.  It seems to be implicated in
this apt crash in Ubuntu:


(apt didn't change in the relevant time period; eglibc seems to be the
only other reasonable suspect.)

I can reproduce the same crash in Debian unstable, with:

  sudo LC_ALL=C.UTF-8 apt-get update

Now, Michael thinks that this is probably an apt bug too, and he's
working on fixing it; but I'm curious as to the rationale for this
change, since I don't know how many other packages might be affected by
similar problems, and what would go wrong if we backed it out?
