As it stands neither you nor Peter presented any specific problems
about teach-ability or learn-ability, but just hide behind long pretty
words. In fact number of people even in this thread expressed different
opinion and in my experience Boost.Test have pretty low entry
threshold. There were complains about some advanced features, but
very few people had troubles learning basic interfaces.
