Locales That Work

As I mentioned before, I don’t like locales. But of course, the solution is blindingly obvious and had passed me by. Unicode Support on FreeBSD points out the correct solution, which avoids breaking ls.

  % export LANG=en_GB.UTF-8 LC_COLLATE=POSIX

Marvellous. Now things can autodetect that I’d like UTF-8, please.
