Giving this one final bump before I move the rebuilds to testing.  I 
have had some reports from people with European locales that things are 
working and some improvements have been noticed. 

Anybody using Russian or Asian locales who can give this a test?  
Contact me if x86_64 builds would be useful in testing and I can start 
those builds now.
