Wow! I'm really glad to see the progress in Boost.Test development! Looking
forward to see the merge to master. Congrats and many thanks to the team!

I took a quick glance at the BOOST_TEST docs[1] - you print test duration in
microseconds like "324mks". Isn't "us" the more common English abbreviation?
It's been discussed on StackOverflow[2], too.

PS: Yes, "μs" would be more correct, but it requires Unicode, so I'm not
suggesting it.
