tests: add a `tests/artifacts/` directory

That directory is meant to cache large items used by tests that are slow to
generate. See 'PURPOSE' file for details and next changesets for a first user.

+This directory is meant to cache artifacts useful for tests (such as bundle).
+Those artifacts need to be cached because they are slow to regenerate on each
+test but too large to be tracked within the repository. They are not expected
+to change between each run and can be cached.
+The `./scripts/` contains code to generate the artifact while the `cache`
+directory contains resulting artifact.
