I forgot to add some documentation for running the tests: you pass the
CMake Flags BOOST_OUT_PTR_TESTS=ON and BOOST_OUT_PTR_EXAMPLES=ON, then run
CMake and everything generates.
I didn't document it because I didn't think it'd be useful, because at the
end of the day in order to use Boost.CI and friends I need to learn Jam and
b2 and all that stuff.
