I'm comparing your tags to the list of installed locales. There are 144 in
JDK 1.3 (beta) for Linux.... none of which is a form of Gaelic. This
illustrates how having a standard tag doesn't always have much
meaning: the operating systems and APIs have to support the languages too!
As an add-on to the existing code (to be finished sometime *after* IUC 17)
I'm including a lookup against the actual standard tags from the RFC.
