Ok.  There was still a question of en_US.UTF-8 vs C.UTF-8, but I believe
the "en_US.UTF-8 is fine enough" argument doesn't hold any more since
some other people say that it isn't for them.

I believe so too, I just didn't want to push it too much, but yes, I
believe that's something that shouldn't break Squeeze at all.
