Then, if we don't want to fix the values once and for all, we can still use
generating of 3-5mln of truly random values
for each large integral type (still with corner cases), but when comparing
naive functions (that are 100% working) and
fast ones (from the library), we can do something like this:

Instead of:
> BOOST_ASSERT(naive_outcome == fast_outcome);
Use this:
> if (naive_outcome != fast_outcome)
> {
> // Or std::cerr or printf
> std::cout << "LOOK AT ME: func_name failed on " << number
> << " real outcome " << naive_outcome
> << " library outcome " << fast_outcome << std::endl;
> BOOST_ASSERT(naive_outcome == fast_outcome);
> }
CI will run this on different machines using randomness, and it is more
likely to catch a bug, looking to its job log.
