Turns out it isn't quite as easy as adding a separate set of test data, adding
test data doesn't influence whether existing tests are run or what their
expected values are. In other words, after adding FS_ARBIC test data the tests
for FS_LATIN1 still fail.
I've added a skip_lang_id member to the test data to skip some of the tests on
Arabic machines. Not ideal (blacklisting instead of whitelisting), but I guess
it will have to do for now.
