BOOST_AUTO_TEST_CASE_TEMPLATE does require to be manually included. I've
decided to follow "Don't pay for something you are not using" principle. If
there is a general consensus I could include this header into unit_test.hpp.

boost/type.hpp is included in boost/test/test_case_template.hpp, so you
shouldn't have any problems.
