FYI, I fiddled things so that test_normalization is expected to be skipped
now if and only if NormalizationTest.txt doesn't exist (BTW, that's over 2M
bytes, so I doubt many will bother to download it).

This is one response to complaints that the current mechanism is too stupid:
teach it what *you* know.  In this case, it was easy to do so, just a matter
of deciding to do so.  I don't know how hard it may get in other cases.
