Yes, others also use it for the same reason. What I meant is only that
others will most likely not remember they should test with and without
the --with-nls option. So we should test both NLS enabled and NLS
disabled configurations in the default test-pkg run perhaps.

But of course then, should we test sysvinit/systemd configurations, to
make sure the init script installation logic works ? Should we test
hardening options ? etc. We can't test everything in test-pkg as it
would make the test too long, and making the test too long will reduce
the incentive to use this tool.
