I think I won't try the change ... I doubt I could give good coverage for testing. But from your suggestion it looks like the code I need to use is
>>> from PyQt4.QtCore import QSettings
>>> locale = QSettings().value("locale/userLocale").toString()
which gives me exactly what I want!

from what I see in src/app/main.cpp initialization code, qgis only
installs translators for the language, but it doesn't change the
locale. It could be easily done by adding
QLocale::setDefault(QLocale(code)) to the initialization. I'm not sure
about the impact of this addition as it overrides various global
settings such as parsing of numbers, so I'm not going to play with it
right now (no time for it either). But it's worth trying out and
testing with several locales - to find out whether things will work.
So if you have some time you might give it a try (and post a patch).
