Most GlibC locales are specified with countries, such as en_US, sv_FI, no_NO, fr_FR, pt_BR, etc. Oh, are you really that slow to understand? Give the command "locale first_weekday" for one country. You get 1. Give it for another country. You get 1 again. You see that the function "locale first_weekday" does not distinguish countries today. Regardless of whether the right answer is Sunday or Monday, it always says Monday. (And please, please don't tell me of the exceptions. I know. All details have been discussed several times already. You are just wasting everybody's time.)
