 With the introduction of the locale switcher in [38961], we've implemented
 3 core switches that use `get_locale()` as the locale argument:

 `switch_to_locale( get_locale() );`

 site.php#L45 delete site email]
 includes/pluggable.php#L1581 wp_notify_postauthor]
 includes/pluggable.php#L1757 wp_new_user_notification]

 Switching to `get_locale()` is useless because `locale` gets filtered by
 the locale switcher, which will use the last locale switched to as the
 return value. So we're just switching to the current locale (if no locale
 switch has ever happened) or to the current locale again if we did switch.
