[Zope-dev] request.locale

Quite a lot of zope3 code (zc.datetimewidget for instance) expects to be 
able to access request.locale. ZPublisher does not provide this and to 
get around the limitation you must manually set request.locale in your 
view using Products.CMFDefault.formlib.form.getLocale. This seems 
brittle. I think it would be desirable to include such functionality in 
Zope 2. If there is support for this, where should it go? 
ZPublisher.HTTPRequst or somewhere in Five seem like prime candidates.
