| Without a doubt, Boost.Test singlehandedly eliminated one of

Me too - but I found getting started VERY confusing and almost gave up.

But Gennadiy now has a whole TEAM of writers on the job of producing better
documentation - and they don't have the crippling disadvantage (for this
task) of having written the code.

With his new macros, I am confident we can produce something very simple.

But either bjam has to work a lot better than it has for me, or better, we
have to ship pre-built library files for the major users.

Given those, it's a doddle.

And it gives you a nice record of what you've tested - and what you haven't

| However... I still can't figure out how to use the macro that checks
| equivalence between floating point numbers. The interface is just too
| strange, and the docs are not very clear.
I am working on this as we speak.
