[NTG-context] Lua os.date() localization in context

Hi all,

I would like to print the day name of a date in french using my current

In lua I can do:
> os.setlocale('fr_FR.UTF-8',all)
> print(os.date("%A"))

But in a cld document it doesn't work. Context complains about using
"os.locale in a supposedly locale neutral enviroment" and it prints the
day name in english.

How can I translate the day names without hardcoding everything?

Thanks in advance.
