The point is that(*) unless you really want to use copyright to "prevent
other developers abusing the code in a non-free way" or something like
that, there's just no rational reason whatsoever to use copyrights and
licensing... well, except somewhat childish "you-shall-give-me-a-credit",
sheesh. Just require all boost submissions/contributions to be released
into the public domain and be done with it, really.


(*) "corporate" view w.r.t. patent issues/etc.-IP stuff and liabilities
    aside for a moment.
