Hi Edwin,

Thanks for your pointer. But how this small test framework is supposed
to work out?

The fact is that I've been using Boost.Test mostly with its auto test
case capability (I don't want to have to write code to register my test
cases one by one in general, unless that's the last resort). Therefore,
I'm not very familiar with how such mechanism can work out by writing
some test framework of my own...

Would you mind to shed some more light on this?
