Naively, what I'm still finding strange is that there is no way of
having from a libc (glibc, in particular) a "C"-locale-only printf, not
sensitive, I mean, to the locale in force. Is just a subset of the whole
functionality and it would be /so/ useful in order to cleanly implement
MT-safe C++ output operations, according to the letter of the standard.
Is there a general "philosophical" point about this which you can
possibly explain to me?
