Not nonsense, exactly my long-term plan to get Gtk and other apps to
use the right Plasma locale settings when running under Plasma. It
'just' requires the kcm to learn how to write and compile a POSIX
locale file.

One problem is Qt completely ignores the contents of that file, and
indeed I'm not sure it would even manage to extract the correct locale
name even so you'd end up with some default.
