class LocaleSupportInTesting(object):
Nikola needs two pairs of valid (language, locale_n) to test multilingual sites.
As languages of interest and installed OS support varies from host to host
we allow to specify two such pairs.
A valid pair complies
'languaje' one of the names of nikola translations ('en', 'es', ...)
'locale_n' is a string that python accepts to set a locale, like in
import locale
locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL, str(locale_n))
You specify the custom pairs to use with two environment variables
NIKOLA_LOCALE_DEFAULT (lang and locale to use as nikola's DEFAULT_LANG)
The value of the pair is lang (as in keys of Nikola's TRANSLATIONS), followed
by coma, followed by the locale.
