    From the setlocale documentation:

           The return type ought to be const char *, but
    is char * to avoid warn‐
           ings in C code predating ANSI C.

    If MSFT requires this to be free()'d then they're in
    the wrong. Fortunately, I've written a
    UT_LocaleTransactor class that I'll make all of our
    code use. If we need to do something like free() the
    returned strings for MSFT, we can fix it in one place.
