And what do you do when you need the Paper format, currency, numeric
system, etc to be United States locale? Changing the GNOME format
changes EVERY variable to whatever that country is set to (not
necessarily what that country uses, what that country's file is set to).
I live in the United States, and wouldn't you know it, some of us use
international date time here. Whoa! But there is no way (in GNOME) to
set the United States locale while using international date time. And
yes the United States is still on the Imperial measurement system, but
many professionals (e.g., scientists) use the Metric system in the
United States. Yet we cannot set these when using GNOME. If I change the
format (in GNOME) and switch to a locale that does use international
date time, I then get currency, paper format, numeric, etc that do not
conform to the USA.
