Subject: [boost] [test] Interest in gtest-like output?

I really like the Boost.Test framework, however, I cant help but have a bit of envy over how great the output from googletest looks.

I've been playing around with writing a formatter/outputter that emulates the output style of googletest, and I am willing to spend some time to pretty it up and generate a patch if there's interest. Does anyone think this would be a worthy submission to boost?

For an example of what the output looks like, this site has some great examples:

(just to clarify: I'm not suggesting changing any BOOST_TEST syntax, just adding a new optional way to format the test progress and results to stdout)
