The interface requiring percentages is bad enough. The explanations in
the documentation are even worse.

Just to remind everyone, I'm a strong supporter of Boost.Test, and have
stated so many times. Unfortunately, that macro causes more problems
than it solves. I'd make a stab at helping Gennadiy clarify the

I would love to see a new macro for testing floating point values.
