I don't see how the settings would be different, surely LC_CTYPE is
always going to control the ASCII->Unicode mapping on Unix, so why
shouldn't it do that on Wine?  If the issue is that users change their
setup without understanding the results, then surely adding even more
config parameters that they need to get right is not going to improve
the situation.
