It appears cron() has locale support. Jan Stary posted this in tech@ last November recommending its removal - it did not receive any follow up posts and locale is still hooked into cron.c:

I've never set locale values with cron jobs, I don't normally use locale settings on terminals, I don't use urlwatch, and I'm not a Python programmer. So I'll step back and let others weigh in on a possible circumvention or solution.
