It does not seem to make sence to have an eo locale (see schwab's
and jelinek's comments).  They vote to set just LANGUAGE (and
LC_ALL somehow independently).

GMT 0 is the best choice.
Take a look at the output of the "locale" command in my Debian system
running perfectly in Esperanto:

LANG=eo.utf8
LANGUAGE=

I think we should not do it that way. Solutions as indicated in the
above referenced redhat bug are better. I think we could implement is
as follows (without major UI changes):

1/ Add Esperanto to the list of primary (and secondary languages).

2/ If the user selects Esperanto, make it visible to the user as, say,
"Default Language" and force the user to select a second item from the
list of primary languages.

+-Primary Language Settings-------------------------------------------+

| Default Language: Esperanto |
| Primary Language [Details]|

| [ ] Adapt Ti| | |
| | Select another language as fallback and | |
+--------------| for locale configuration. |------------+

| [OK] |
+-----------------------------------------+


3/ Then set LANGUAGE to "eo" and LANG to the secondary selected primary
language.

Remarks: Make "Default Language" only visible, if the user selects
Esperanto or something similar.

Maybe, we should allow more than one Default Language, thus it would be
possible to configure LANGUAGE cascades.
