I'd like to see a single license for a reason not yet mentioned: If we
have a single license that applies to all libraries (and other parts of
boost), you don't have to recheck on updates. Currently, when installing
boost, you almost always get some new bits and pieces you have to check
for compliance. Also, you have to check all old licenses for changes.
Usually, there are no changes, but from a lawyers point of view, it may
still be a problematic thing. Having a single license that says: Last
changes in boost version 1.25.2, you'll be happy to upgrade to boost
3.42.1. That way, people will have the allowance by their company to use
any software that uses the boost-licence, version 2, not just the
boost-libraries from archive version 1.25.1.
