I committed the change to Zope trunk now (r79698). As a nice side-effect
I could remove some code in Five's formlib support, which was only
working around the issue of the missing request.locale :)

As setting up the locale can be a bit slow sometimes (it parses a rather
large XML file in the end) I made the loading lazy, so it will only be
loaded when accessed first and not on creation of the request. This way
requests not needing it should not be slowed down.
