Those test were inherited from Boost.Interprocess and when trying
Boost.Test back in 2005 I found it too heavyweight for the kind of tests
I needed, specially when using the debugger. It could an old problem
with my IDE installation but I never looked back.

After some years I've slowly started porting some tests from my
libraries (maybe not Container, I can't remember) to Core's
lightweight_test which I is dependecy-free, fast and enough for most needs:

Is lightweight test acceptable for GSOC?
