TLDR: Sounds like this makes it harder to mess up the locale setup so I'm all 
for it.

This mail just reminded me that one of my own projects didn't handle a messed 
locale setup gracefully in the past causing multiple users (that apparently 
had a messed setup) to report issues, e.g. https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/
syncthingtray#comment-816671 and https://github.com/Martchus/syncthingtray/
issues/109. And when I searched for the error to investigate the issue I found 
many results. If it helps preventing applications from crashing completely 
with errors like "locale::facet::_S_create_c_locale name not valid" it is 
likely worth including.
