A harness and mock APIs would be awesome but I think that I am struggling with something more
fundamental, more specifically, how to structure my Autotools based so that my
Boost based unit tests can call into the same code that is in my plugin module.  I tried using
a static library which would hold the code that is used by the ATS plugin module and tested
by the unit tests but it seems that the object files in the static library are not included
in the ATS plugin module, regardless of what Autotools incantations I put into my

I was wondering how other people structure their to allow this to work.
