I'd like to find an algorithm to determine the charset and language
(in the sense of those terms defined by IETF RFC 2277,
http://info.internet.isi.edu:80/in-notes/rfc/files/rfc2277.txt) of a C
string, probably using the information returned by a call to setlocale:

	current_locale = setlocale (LC_ALL, NULL);

Is this in any way standardized?  Are there good heuristics that
can be used?
