I know it's a lot to take in, but most changes are pretty logical (or I wouldn't have been able to find/code them). I'm currently facing implementing wcsnrtombs and after that there's the more troubling issue of catgets and associates, which I'm quite worried about, as Win32 is almost orthogonal to this whole API. Ideas for that are very welcome.

Maybe once the whole win32 stuff is complete, some refactoring is in order. The mask type is defined and all values are defined to the correct values (extracted from mingw-w64 headers).

> All this should work for both MinGW(-w64)/GCC and Microsoft/MSVC headers/libraries. Note the *_l functions are only available on recent Windows versions, which should be good enough for now. Especially the locale stuff (up till now!) should work for more than only plain "C" locale.
> One point of attention: the FIXME in the new locale.h header needs attention: Win32 needs to call a function to enable thread-local locales, and then setlocale operates on the thread's locale, which is great. But this function needs to be called somewhere before everything else (in some static initialization function or something). On top of that, I'm not quite sure that what I do in my short implementation of uselocale is correct. I think it is, and it definitely is inefficient.

I've slightly modified your patch (enclosed below) for your review. My modification consisted of changes only to <__config> and <type_traits>.
I've confirmed that there is no impact to OS X. I have no opinion on what this does for _WIN32 (if others do, please speak up). If you (and everyone else) is ok with this patch, then add to this patch your entry in CREDITS.TXT and post back. I'll commit it.
