while in a state "about to add my tests to restression testing
system". Now reression system came to the Boost.Test to pick up te
tests ;-)

there is one issue that we will need to cope with.
Two of the Boost.Test unit tests are using external pattern files to
match against. They are located in libs/test/test/ directory. During
test run it's assumed that they are in the same location as the
program. Lack of the patterns files is causing both of them to fail.
Another small issue is that some of the tests create temporary
files as a side effect. Do we want to delete them after test is
