In terms of corlib code, Locale.GetText should actually be relatively
rare: only used in exceptional code paths. So, I have the feeling that
this is not as bad as it looks. Once you get a stack trace that will go
to the console, it's not like an extra 50 ms will really make a
difference :-).

Anyways, the biggest source of jit'ing that i can see in that code is
due to:

typeof (Locale).Assembly.GetName ().Name

Which, IIRC does a relatively wide range of stuff.
