The win for me is that I don't have to dig up a specific copy of the
library parameterized upon architecture, compiler, and compiler settings
every time I want something as simple as
error messages for standard exceptions that percolate through main. If
adding this feature suddenly adds the need for a makefile (bear in mind
I tend to use 3 different compilers on any given day) and configuration
options, I'm not going to be bothered.
I found that the previous test tools compiled quickly when included into
an application in this manner. Do the basic features from the previous
Boost.Test (specifically Execution Tools) really require a large
quantity of code?
