1) It should be possible to set LANG/LC_* variables through Info.plist, but that currently doesn't work.

2) It may be useful to have a py2app option for this, although explicitly updating info.plist isn't too bad.

    Duh, setting LC_CTYPE won't work because py2app sets LC_CTYPE to "en_US.UTF-8" during Py_Initialize and that means os.environment will contain that value instead of the one mentioned in the environment.
