Alright, I admit that I like what you've done there. I was afraid you'd
be removing the explicit commands and replacing them with the equivalent
of "yeah, just do this, that, and the other thing, then you're set".

I think the explanation of the locales would go better in a hint that
could be referenced by the book. It doesn't seem appropriate to stuff
the book full of internationalization tidbits ;)
