i'm not aware of such a thing.

qt leaves loading the catalogs to the user code, which typically uses
QLocale. this does indeed mean that support for a test locale would need
to be added to QLocale. discussing this is kind of out of scope for this
list. i suggest you check the bugtracker and create a new task as
necessary. make sure to make me aware of it, so i can try to kick a few
relevant people.
