PPvariadic allows to use some of the features introduced on boost.test
v3 that eg. boost.log is not using. I can enforce the support of
PPvariadic for the compilers I know that support variadic, so that it
brings a subset of v3 for those compilers, without the user taking care
of that.

I will clarify that point in the doc, but I do not see much of
inconsistencies there:
- variadic already defined => up to the user (either inclusion order or
- variadic not defined => up to boost.test.v3

But again this concerns features that are in boost.test.v3 and not in

The fix should be in develop once my runners are green (maybe half an hour).
