#12953: access to master_test_suite().{argc, argv}

 for testing I use a "loader" class to read input and expected files from
 filesystem. These files are used by the data-driven test cases. The path
 to these files are given from command line.

 Due to the fact that datasets are creating static objects on file scope, I
 can't access them by calling master_test_suite().{argc, argv} outside of
 e.g. BOOST_AUTO_TEST_CASE where the "loader" exist.

 Using the Fixture approach fails to compile, see attachement. Further, as
 far I understood, the files would be loaded again for each data driven
 test, which is not intended.

 Following the docs, I didn't found a way to get access to the (in best
 case from boost.test args pruned) argc/argv. Is it a missing feature and

 The initial thread is on ML "[boost] [Boost.Test] access to
 boost::unit_test::framework::master_test_suite().{argc, argv} outside from
