That's an interesting question. Why should calendars be tied to locales?
For example, an English-speaking Muslim living in the EU or North
America may well want to use an Islamic calendar for some purposes.
Similarly, an Asian person living elsewhere may find it useful to work
with the "Chinese" calendar.
Can somebody either point to or explain why Islamic Calendar functions
are only available for the following locales:
* ar_EG: Arabic Egypt;
* ar_LB: Arabic Lebanon;
* ar_SA: Arabic Saudi Arabia;
* ar_TUN: Arabic Tunisia;
I couldn't find anything on the LibreOffice website in English, Dutch,
or German. Baidu, Yandex, DuckDuckGo were equally uninformative. :(
And then there are the Julian versus Gregorian calendars use in various
Christian denominations. While all European nations use the Gregorian
calendar secularly, the Julian is still used for religious purposes.
Is this a case of the locales being overused for things that aren't
really location dependent?
