I would be more excited if the scrambling patches go first (*) and
then we start to make "make test" poisoned by default. Scrambled
output is still very readable and it will make people not forget about
grepping translated stuff the wrong way. Of course *i18n* functions in
the test suite need to be updated to to grep/compare for real, not
just exit early like they do now.

(*) The pseudolocalization idea is also good, but printing unicode by
default may be a bit of a stretch. Not everybody is running the test
suite with a unicode-capable terminal.
