Of course I considered that. Clearly not any existing top level
directory in the tree, those are reserved for what we install and what
is "import visible" after installation.

Test utility code should not be installed with our normal modules and

It has to be importable from both the install/po area and the test area.

It can't depend on nosetests setting the import path prior to execution
(because only the unit tests are run via nose).

So we could create a directory tests/util which hosts utilities used for
test code and locate it there. I did consider that, it would be
(somewhat) cleaner.

But unless I'm missing something someone is going to have to modify the
include path prior to importing any test utility code. It just becomes a
question of where the file is located. I'd be happy to move the bulk of
the logic into tests/util/i18n.py, but to import it the importing code
is going to have to add tests/util to the import path, which puts you
pretty much back into the original situation, just with a different path
(albeit perhaps a more logical cleaner path).

Can install/po/Makefile just call test_i18n.py from the tests/ tree? It doesn't import any IPA code so there's no need to set sys.path in this case (though there'd have to be a comment saying we depend on this).
In the other case, unit tests, the path is already set by Nose.
Also the file would have to be renamed so nose doesn't pick it up as a test module.
