I saw that you tried to "fix" the issue in the latest commits to Test
but it didn't help. It's still required to link against Timer or Test,
see e.g. the failing Atomic tests vs the Geometry tests.
So currently the usage of header-only version of Test probably has
little sense.
Or am I missing something?
