A forthcoming TIP proposes augmenting the message
catalog mechanism with a root locale, to be searched
if all searches in language-dependent locales fail.
This patch contains its reference implementation.

ok. I fixed it after commit. :)

probably missed my comment
in an SF maintenance period.

oops!  my bad.

Seems the patch does not
include the update to

fix that before committing.

patch checks out fine on Linux,
including install into the
correct msgcat1.4 directory.

A refinement that might be
nice someday would be to
use the tcltest constraints to
mark tests with what version
requirement they have, so the
same test suite can test multiple
releases of msgcat.  Not a requirement
for this TIP, though.

Acceptance of this patch will
also imply a bump to
version 1.4 of msgcat.

This patch makes use of the "eq"
string equality operator that first
appeared in Tcl 8.4.

Either the patch should be modified
to use [string equal] instead, or the
Tcl requirement of msgcat should
also be patched to
[package require Tcl 8.4].
