The setting of those variables also contain, even if implicitly, the character
set being used. For instance, my LANG is "pt_BR", which means that the
default encoding is ISO-8859-1. Characters outside that range will be
LC_* is supposed to override the LANG setting for the category, and LC_ALL
overrides everything else. LC_CTYPE, in special, can contain only the
character encoding (like, LC_CTYPE=UTF-8).
