Boost :

This test suite is most promising, but I feel a strong need for some
timestamping of the test and of the sources files modification date
if this is possible. Surely this is the minimum 'Good Practice'?

Do you plan for this to be managed outside the test?

Or can you suggest how it should be done, portably of course!

I've posted a question asking for advice on how,
to pass on to Gennadiy, but no suggestions.

Is this really an intractable problem?
