      Description

      RFC 3066 language tags are widely used on the internet. It would be nice if they were supported directly by the Locale class, that is, if there was a factory method that returned the Locale instance for a given RFC 3066 language tag, and a method on Locale that returns the corresponding RFC 3066 language tag.

      Issues:

      - RFC 3066 supports language tags that cannot be represented in the Locale class because they go beyond ISO 639/3166 codes.

      - A replacement for RFC 3066 is currently in draft state; see
      http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-phillips-langtags-08.txt

      RFC 4646 obsoletes RFC 3066.
