Parsing locale specific dates, currency, numbers

P: n/a
The locale module provides the ability to format dates, currency and
numbers according to a specific locale.

Is there a corresponding module for parsing locale's output to convert
locale formatted dates, currency, and numbers back to their native data
types on the basis of a specified locale?

In other words, a module that will reverse the outputs of locale on a
locale specific basis.

Thanks!

There are some attempts in Babel (http://babel.edgewall.org/), but the
devs themselves claim the routines are incomplete. You might want to
check it, though.
