After some consideration I see following two chooses:
1. I could try completely mimic Boost.Test V1 interface/functionality.
This solution includes:
   a. Introduce boost/test/cpp_main.cpp, which in fact will be forwarding
header that includes
       boost\libs\test\src\cpp_main.cpp and
   b. Make test_tools.hpp to handle BOOST_INCLUDE_MAIN (or some other more
descriptive name).
       If BOOST_INCLUDE_MAIN is defined test_tools will implement some
limited lightweight functionality
       similar to what Boost.Test v1 was doing.

This solution could be deprecated in a future, when it is not used anymore

2. I could introduce 2 new headers to support online (no library) testing
    a. boost/online/prg_exec_monitor.hpp
       This header will include
         boost\libs\test\src\cpp_main.cpp and
     b. boost/online/test_exec_monitor.hpp
       This header will include everything current online_test is including.

This solution could be permanent. It will work and support the same set of
features as offline version.
