I told you, please either reproduce the argument or give me a specific
referenc.  "The c.l.s post" is rather a vague description, I'm afraid,
and I simply don't have time to read every one and then figure out
exactly which one you are referring to.  I did read some, and guessed
what you were referring to already, and guessed wrong.  So please help
me out.

As I have said, one needs to specify a specific standard locale, and
then say what the behavior of that locale is, with regard to the
characters required to exist for specifying programs in the language.
