One of the unit tests for my package breaks only on r-devel under Windows (
The unit test sorts a set of UTF-8 characters and writes them to disk. I've
noticed that the Euro symbol (€) gets a different place in r-devel under
Windows 10 compared to over combinations of R version and OS.
I know that sorting depends on the locale. Therefore I set the locale to
"C" prior to sorting. See the function below. After sorting, I reset the
locale to the existing one.

To call in the statistician after the experiment is done may be no more
than asking him to perform a post-mortem examination: he may be able to say
what the experiment died of. ~ Sir Ronald Aylmer Fisher
The plural of anecdote is not data. ~ Roger Brinner
The combination of some data and an aching desire for an answer does not
ensure that a reasonable answer can be extracted from a given body of data.
~ John Tukey
