Hello Gennadiy,

Okay. I will look into the new style of testing tools and work on a
patch for that.

Would it be alright to also add the BOOST_<level>_NE_COLLECTIONS macro
for "legacy" users? A new patch would add support for the new style
of testing tools as well as the BOOST_<level>_NE_COLLECTIONS macro.
