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?
