I think I probably jumped the gun a little here: there's going to some
discussion around here real soon now about a "standard" boost licence for
new code. At present I've been trying to flag up files that have licences
that are *almost* completely identical to common ones used elsewhere in
boost, but which are just different enough to be separate legal entities
(well probably anyway<g>). If you want to either hold off any changes for a
while that's completely OK; your existing licence is perfectly boost
compatible, it's just um, well "unique".

I'll also try and post a rundown of what licences are actually in use right
now, one I've got my code a bit more complete.
