This seems like a very weird use case because it effectively limits server
to processing requests on one thread, since as mentioned elsewhere in the
document per-thread locale setting is still in the proposal phase. Do you
have any examples? In my experience changing locale dynamically more often
than not breaks programs' expectations.
