1. I am planning to add test case some basic timing really soon.
2. On some (UNIX) systems test case timeout could be set right now. At some point I will try to tuckle windows timeouts.
3. One could now print object sizes using BTL BOOST_MESSAGE facility. It does not affect pass/fail status - it's just the way to print an info.
4. I am planning to add named test case run soon. This way regression test facility could run only validating test cases/suites.
