I have, for my own purposes, refactored Gennidy's Boost.Test code - attached -
with a demo.
Is this of any interest or does it meet your needs? (The location you suggest
sounds sensible - except that people may have trouble finding it, an existing
difficulty with the math toolkit structure. Doxygenation might help this, but
is a massive job - see the doxygen comments in fp_compare.hpp.)
