1. I'm reluctant to recommend that any program use Boost.Test until its
documentation is made to correspond to its actual interface.

2. You'd better ask Gennadiy what makes sense for Boost.Test; I don't
understand the rationale by which it gets developed

3. Maybe we could have an option in boost/detail/lightweight_test, or
simply a separate header called boost/detail/regression.hpp that
includes something that does this. Maybe the old
"dynamically-initialized static member of a template" trick makes sense
