Except that MacOS X *applications* (as apart from more POSIXy programs,
and Terminal.app) should not use the POSIX locales, but should use the
CLDR locales (via an Apple API or via ICU)... (Yes, I know, CLDR have
POSIX locales format files covering **some** of the CLDR data...)

And ISO 8859-15? Really? I don't even find it in the list of encodings
Terminal.app supports (but maybe that is just me not finding it).
Terminal.app by default uses UTF-8.
