It always has been. While Boost.Test has some cool features, they
don't seem to markedly improve the quality of testing in a library
that uses Boost.Test, which mostly depends on the skill of the test
designer. Also, if you use lightweight_test.hpp you are liable to
continue to get useful test results even if Boost.Test should be
broken ;-)
