I guess one approach would be to make percent and epsilon
small concrete types:

BOOST_CHECK_CLOSE( a, b , percent(0.5) )
BOOST_CHECK_CLOSE( a, b , epsilon(0.05))

can then both map to functions of different signatures from current
implementation which I guess take a double.

In principle you could use boost::rational
BOOST_CHECK_CLOSE( a, b , rational(3,5000))
but then the tester uses what is tested, not good :-\
