Yeah I think you're right, at least for cross-platform code. This is easier said than done, since no doubt loads of our dependencies use gettext or other things that use getenv(), and probably in threads. :(

For WPE/GTK it would be totally infeasible and we will have to rely on glibc's safety assumptions. :/
