Comment (by swissspidy):

 Replying to [comment:4 pento]:
 > To ensure consistent behaviour, the best option would be to get the
 output of `time()` at the start of each test, then pass it to the `date()`
 and `date_i18n()` calls, to ensure they're both generating from the same

 But then I can't really test for the case where no timestamp is passed to
 the function. I mean, ideally we'd mock dates, but the delta comparison
 should work just as well.
