* \brief Report the user's preferred locale.
* This returns an array of SDL_Locale structs, the final item zeroed out.
* When the caller is done with this array, it should call SDL_free() on
* the returned value; all the memory involved is allocated in a single
* block, so a single SDL_free() will suffice.
* Returned language strings are in the format xx, where 'xx' is an ISO-639
* language specifier (such as "en" for English, "de" for German, etc).
* Country strings are in the format YY, where "YY" is an ISO-3166 country
* code (such as "US" for the United States, "CA" for Canada, etc). Country
* might be NULL if there's no specific guidance on them (so you might get
* { "en", "US" } for American English, but { "en", NULL } means "English
* language, generically"). Language strings are never NULL, except to
* terminate the array.
* Please note that not all of these strings are 2 characters; some are
* three or more.
* The returned list of locales are in the order of the user's preference.
* For example, a German citizen that is fluent in US English and knows
* enough Japanese to navigate around Tokyo might have a list like:
* { "de", "en_US", "jp", NULL }. Someone from England might prefer British
* English (where "color" is spelled "colour", etc), but will settle for
* anything like it: { "en_GB", "en", NULL }.
* This function returns NULL on error, including when the platform does not
* supply this information at all.
* This might be a "slow" call that has to query the operating system. It's
* best to ask for this once and save the results. However, this list can
* change, usually because the user has changed a system preference outside
* of your program; SDL will send an SDL_LOCALECHANGED event in this case,
* if possible, and you can call this function again to get an updated copy
* of preferred locales.
* \return array of locales, terminated with a locale with a NULL language
* field. Will return NULL on error.
