           LocaleUtils.toLocale("en")         = new Locale("en", "")
           LocaleUtils.toLocale("en_GB")      = new Locale("en", "GB")

        (#) The behaviour of the JDK variant constructor changed between JDK1.3 and JDK1.4. In JDK1.3, the constructor upper cases the variant, in JDK1.4, it doesn't. Thus, the result from getVariant() may vary depending on your JDK. This method validates the input strictly. The language code must be lowercase. The country code must be uppercase. The separator must be an underscore. The length must be correct.
