Whilst not in Boost, I do a lot of tests that require specific
hardware be present in a machine, not actually running functional
tests on machines that do not have the hardware is quite useful.
I say functional tests because I obviously use a mock/stub for the
unit tests where possible. The alternative for me is to repeat the
hardware detection across a range of tests, this gets harder to
implement as I do larger integration/functional tests.
In these cases its nice to be able to say the opposite too, 'Run this
test if the previous one failed' for instance to test fail over type
