This would be fine with me since libraries will add tests much more than new
libraries will be added. Much less fragile than one file with all the tests.

In the date-time library testing is split into 3 independent parts:
  libs/gdtl/test --> tests of generic components
  libs/gdtl/gregorian/test --> tests of the gregorian date system
  libs/gdtl/posix_time/test--> tests of the posix_time system

If someone added a mayan date system to the mix then there
would be a /mayan/test subdirectory. I'm not 100% sure how you
would autodetect in the case other than looking for the /test
subdirectories. BOTH, all the build instructions for these
are in gdtl/build.
