i don't think LC_COLLATE as it stands is a good idea for filenames. some
locales ignore punctuation for whatever reason, probably because its
defined by the respective dictionary standard. but it's
counterproductive to mangle filenames that way, particularly depending
on the locale and not some setting explicitly relating to file names.
