I've been using Boost.Test a bit for some work lately, and I just had
a quick comment. The Test tools have been really great for some of my
development work. I can put together some quick executables to test
out functionality, and with the help of gnu automake, I can put
together a test suite rather quickly. My one question is in regard to
the Execution tools.

I definitely like the feel of the execution tools. In the past my
main functions have generally been wrapped in a sub-sufficient try
block to catch exceptions, but with a switch to cppmain, this is taken
care of for me. I was hoping to use the execution tools in production
code, but I find the "no errors detected" message to be about the only
hindrance to this. I'd rather not have my apps output this message
under normal operation. Could this message be factored down to the
Test tools level (test_main) such that no errors leads to a silent
exit from cpp_main?
