Really? I can appreciate that you seem to be frastrated for some reason, but
I frankly not sure what exactly is a cause. The only thing that comes to
mind is that you always prefered franction tolerance over percent. You might
be interested to know that new floating point comparison interfaces improve

Can you please, please, show me a single post, here I claim anything along
these lines. I am not going to cooperate on making the library worse (in any
aspect). You can cite me on that.

* No one ever expressed a problem with Boost.Test being slow
* Boost.Test is header only (has an ability)
