Thanks for pointing that out, Gennadiy. After so many years of using NUnit
setup/teardown, I was missing the obvious way of doing the same thing in
C++. I've updated the article to reflect that fixtures are perfectly
possible with Boost.Test.

With that, Boot.Test definitely makes it to my list of finalists. The only
two drawbacks I see are the reliance of some of the other Boost libraries
(it would be ideal if something this low level could be fully
self-contained), and the verbosity needed to create suites.
