Two questions coming from the .NET World.
I understand that there is no way in Swift to change the thread's current locale (in .NET there is a way to change the thread's current "culture") and that only the device's current locale can be changed. Apparently, the device's current locale may not be changed programmatically. Is that right? If so, how will Swift running on a server handle requests from various clients whose locales may be different?
Is there such a concept as an "invariant" locale (to avoid notably surprizes with a Turkish device for instance). An invariant locale which could be used, for instance, with
String.range(of: pattern, options:.regularExpression, locale: locale)
(If there is no equivalent concept, I suppose one could use the English US locale... Although on .NET, invariant locale and US locale don't behave to same way when using toUpper() for µ U+00B5 and ı U+0131...)
