System.Locale is broken?

System.Locale.defaultTimeLocale, which appears to be taken directly from
the Haskell report, is hard-coded to american english settings... which
seems to defeat the purpose of the module.  Are there plans to provide the
actual locale?

I have users who would like to have their times formatted according to
their own locale.  I'd rather not have to do this using the FFI to access
the C library. :(
