Any module that uses $_ should localize it or any other globals they futz around with IMHO.

    I guess it is a time to send patches for 5.8.0 core Perl modules :)
    • Locale::Country
    • Locale::Currency
    • Locale::Language
    • Locale::Script
    It seems all of them touch $_ but do not localize $_.
