I'm not impressed with that proposal either --- then we don't even have
any control over what set of locales are getting tested.

Note that there are certain locales we've deliberately chosen not to
support in some regression tests (see e.g. plpython_unicode.sql), so
I'm not really willing to buy into the idea that "any random locale found
on a buildfarm animal should work" anyway.  I'm much more interested in
supporting locales that someone cares enough about to configure a
buildfarm animal for.
