It's the version of Boost.Test -- I think this should be 1.21 instead of
1.22, however. See <>

I originally was working from trunk, but there's a whole bunch of
stuff that is in trunk that isn't in release so with this snapshot I
rescynchronized to the release branch.

I really don't yet understand what is going on with this library in
terms of how it is being maintained and enhanced. Unfortunately the
maintainer is not very responsive.
