Well, I have a Russian user of fpGUI. He noted quite a few issues with
FPC's locale variables and Russian language.  We had to implement our
own > 1 byte locale variables and create custom formatting strings to
use those instead of FPC's ones.  MSEgui had to do the exact same
thing. A lot of effort, plus you need to notify the toolkit users to
use the toolkit specific formatting functions, instead of the standard
RTL ones.
