Hmm, but as Ken pointed out, 'locale -a' (which we point out on that 
same page) lists 'en_GB.iso88591', so I've a feeling us setting it to 
'ISO-8859-1' may just confuse folks.  If there's stuff out there that 
incorrectly expects something else, it needs reporting as a bug IMO.

So, are there any compelling reasons for us not setting it to 
'en_GB.iso88591'?

Cheers,

Matt.
