Maybe I'm missing something, but as a Spanish native speaker I can't 
understand why we (the Spanish-speaking community) could need locales as 
es_FR or es_IT or even why would be necessary for the French and Italian 
speaking world. Is something like en_ES, no_IT or de_RU. Why the heck is 
that? ;-)

Best regards.
