http://boost.org/libs/test/doc/usage/msvc_net.html#t2 don't make that
BTW, "CLA" is not a universally understood abbreviation.

I'm not sure it is. It seems to me that Boost.Test has two uses:
1) for writing effective unit and regression tests
2) for writing "resilient" software
Given its name, I think (1) should be emphasized, but I think the
"catches all errors" behavior is more appropriate to (2).
