Ben, you are not correct. In MWF, the Locale class is used for getting 
localized text for buttons in dialogs, for retrieving built-in images (for 
dialogs), icons and cursors, and to retrieve the category and description 
for viewing properties in propertygrid. Those are not in the main code path 
and don't demand ultra-high speed, but performance does matter a bit
