I've modified the bcp tool to add a --report mode which will report all the
licenses in effect for a set of boost files, for example:

bcp --report scoped_ptr.hpp scoped-ptr-report.html

will report:

* All the licences in effect.
* All the authors using each license.
* All the copyright holders using each license.
* Any files with no recognized copyright holder or license.
* All the authors and the files they are responsible for.
* The dependency information for each file found (which is to say the reason
for including each file as a dependency).

There are a couple of examples of the program output here:

The source is in cvs now, or available from here:

as is a win32 executable:

If the folks that have been having trouble with boost licenses could take a
look and see if this helps smooth their problems out I would appreciate it.
