Indeed, but that doesn't solve the mess of workarounds. Getting WG14 to do
something would be the cleanest of course.

Do note that <ctype.h> is the worst of all, though, because all those isxxx
are macros, requiring either C lib help (glibc doesn't define them in C++ mode)
or #undef in the C++ override.

In any case, how about we add the _l explicit-locale additional functions to
C++ first?
