Does they work on Windows too? (i.e. someone else is using them on Windows and reported success...)
I think that a unit test framework can be usefull (tosqlparse.cpp is the best candidate for this).
For the other one (Loki), I think that we should use it only if there is a specific need. (For example you need a specific C++ idiom in Tora). As Nathan asked, do you have something in mind?
Ciao

>> The library is virtually complete implemented as template library.

>> second library: CppUnit
>> =======================
>>

>> purpose: C++ unit testing framework

>>
>> 1) linking against the lib is only neccessary for developers who want

>> 2) we would separate the tests from the sources, one additional

>>
>> 3) library is available for *n*x and windows

>> 4) good support by autotools, you can run your tests by
