First of all I agree that we should not implement overlapping
functionality in different boost libraries but OTOH I don't know why the
developer of the test library implements its own string class.

I do would like to remark that we should minimise dependencies in the
test-tools libraries and make them as lightweight as possible. Because
if the test tools don't compile, they can't be used to verify if the
rest compiles !?
