If you really care about that (and I don't quite see why -- being able 
to validate the shipping code is useful), it's no harder than this:

#if !defined( FINAL_MODE )

class BoxTest : public UnitTest {

BoxTest boxTest;


It's not that different from, say, CXXTEST_RUNNING, or other such 
defines used by various unit testing frameworks.

In a statically linked library, the testing code won't be included if 
you never call it. In a dynamically linked library, the testing code 
will never be paged in if you never call it. Neither way would the 
testing code actually 'get in the way' IMO.
