And what's the rationale for NOT using C locale when writing to config ? 
I often change my locale, and I don't want to loose my config!!

It's probably NOT ok. Most places were I could find float/string 
conversions were debug messages, but they are also to be found in :
 - the RTSP VoD module (which MUST obviously stick to US convention, 
given it's a network protocol),
 - the VLM configuration parsing,
 - maybe, galaktos conf parsing.

Well, probably mostly configuration files/text-based network protocol 
parsing. And these should all have locale-independant float format.
