Re: [vox-tech] Generating the Klingon (tlh) locale?

If you really want, you can force gettext to accept a custom locale.  The
trick is to use putenv() instead of setlocale().  Some minor issues might
creep up if you suddently switch from setlocale() to putenv(), though, so
be sure to run some tests on different environments before releasing a
stable package!
