Ok. Maybe I should define better what I have found a need for
(it would save tons of time, FWIW). When I said "test" I meant
a single test case, like defined by BOOST_AUTO_TEST_CASE.

If "test" means test suite as defined by BOOST_AUTO_TEST_SUITE, I guess
I can get most of what I want by making a dummy test suite and move my
problematic code to that suite while debugging.
