How about if I put itest::exception into public interface and make it aware
about scope it was thrown from?

I could turn off leaks detection at runtime. But:

1. You could do this at compile time for both library and test or only test
if you are using included components
2. It's going to be user's responsibility to check for leaks *and* notify
the framework (using BOOST_ERROR for example) so that it could report failed
execution path.

Does it worth it?
