Note that LC_PAPER isn't a standard (except glibc >= 2.2 or so, not
POSIX or anything like that. libpaper even less so, sure. 

Still, it's definately the way to go, why have an extra library when
glibc has everything that needed. Patching libpaper to use LC_PAPER 
if /etc/paper.conf doesn't exist (and even trying to get that upstream
to do that with their libpaper) might be useful too, not that anything
in Fedora seems to even use it currently.
