I'm not ready to buy into the position that we should make the
regression tests pass on every last locale definition that anyone can
find.  That's probably impossible, and certainly more trouble than it'd
be worth.  I suspect there's only a dozen or two that need to get
tested.

But I would suggest that this could be the policy: don't complain about
regression tests failing in a locale unless you're prepared to support a
buildfarm member that tests that locale on a routine basis.
