I don't think it was ever sufficiently explained why horizon now needs
django nose to compile it's message catalog (which is where it is
failing) when moving to 1.7.


That seems to mean that nose is no longer a test only requirement, but a
hard requirement for installation.

While we can work around that in the gate, I think this might bite some
real users here. And I'd rather know why this need changed.
