LANG=C should be ok.

It's the correct assumption.

I thought about this too, but decided to leave it alone so that the 
version number reported in the docs would correspond to the major XX.YY 
and not the bugfix XX.YY.ZZ releases. The point was that there ought to 
be no API changes in the .ZZ, so we'd like docs for newer versions 
(possibly containing updates etc.) be labelled as compatible with all 
XX.YY. versions.
