As a user data point: Both in the company I work for and in some other
projects I work on, I had to resort to use GTest instead of either
Boost.Test or Catch2 because of the lack of thread-safe checking api.
Apparently Catch2 author now plan to implement thread-safe assertions.

Just so you know that it's an important feature for a lot of projects
(but I understand it's not necessarilly easy to provide).
