The Principality of Liechtenstein currently does not have a corresponding
locale. Given the links with Switzerland, the best is to base the locale
on the de_CH one (German is the official language) and only change the
country related categories: LC_ADDRESS. and LC_TELEPHONE.

localedata/Changelog:
	* locales/de_LI: New locale.
	* SUPPORTED: Add de_LI.

Do you think could country_{post,car,isbn} be defined as well here?

The original patch we have in Debian does not define them. Now if I can
find the information, that can clearly be done.

I have found the country_post value (LI), the country_car value (FL),
but not the country_isbn value. It seems the number 3 (German) is used,
but I am not fully sure about that, so I prefer a missing value than a
wrong one.

I'll send a new version of this patch after it get some more comments.

I was under impression country_isbn is for national codes, not for
language codes. Thus for Luxembourg 99959 would be correct.

In any case, I'll ask from a Luxembourgian colleague about this.

Still that's a good example. de_LU and fr_LU do not define country_isbn.
lb_LU defines it as 2 not 99959.

i'm not sure this block serves any useful purpose.  should just punt it.

seems like you can/should just copy i18n here.  yes, this statement
applies to many other locales, but we shouldn't keep adding more bad
ones :).

otherwise looks OK

If I copy i18n, how can I define also define int_prefix? I tried using
using copy and defining it below, and I get:

| de_LI:69: no other keyword shall be specified when `copy' is used

Any idea?

sorry, i thought you could use copy & then define more stuff after the
copy.  if that's not the case and i'm misremembering, then ignore it.
just drop a comment in there saying "same as i18n".
