Comment (by Raffi Enficiaud):

 Hi Olaf,

 So yes, once the test starts (in `BOOST_DATA_TEST_CASE`) you have access
 to the `argv` as usual. The only issue you were facing is that `argv`
 should be used in your setup to create the tests and it was not supported.
 If you need to pass an additional parameter to the test for the reporting
 you have, I would rather suggest to access it through the
 `master_test_suite_t` `argv`. The other option would be to change the
 iterator of the dataset to return this parameter. In the example I posted,
 there is a third parameter that is given to the test.

 You can get the current test case name directly from the framework. See
 [ here] for instance.

 For the error raised by passing `--list_content`, this is just a problem
 in handling the datasets, not a boost.test issue (I got it running for the
 example I gave you by disabling all the other tests from the file `test
 /test-organization-ts/dataset-master-test-suite-accessible-test.cpp` in
 this branch).
