The detail is in the logs, which is where I discovered the issue with
collations not being supported on all platforms and added a check to
skip the collation tests on those platforms.

While I'm generally in favor of adding diag() info into the testing for
when things go wrong, what I don't want to do is increase the amount of
output that these tests produce without good cause.  I really wish there
was a "quiet" mode for the TAP tests which didn't report anything when
things are 'ok'.
