[Mono-dev] How to make new locales for CultureInfo?

Sadly we don't have sysglobl.dll which implements 
CultureAndRegionInfoBuilder. It is a bit messy that it requires
additional consideration on how culture resources should be
retrieved and stored (I have to admit that I dislike it since
this framework works only on the machine that installed the 
corresponding culture).

Our culture information is created from LDML information (which is
actually from ICU) and stored in the mono runtime itself. If you
want to add other cultures that we miss, you might be able to
pull them from newer ICU and add it in the catalog

Which culture do you need specifically ?
