Per user configuration

The manual man 5 locale is very brief, but it lists man 7 locale under SEE ALSO. The main purpose of the manual is to describe the format of /etc/locale.conf. The xdg-standard however also allows per-user locale settings in a file ~/.config/locale.conf with a similar format.
