Could you explain how you did get to this list of authors? I must say
I'm quite surprised to be in it. When looking at the various files, it
seems to me you are the only copyright holder of all header files in
boost/function. So it shouldn't be a problem to switch to the BSL.

Or maybe you are considering that somebody who corrected a small typo at
a given time now holds a copyright on these files? I may be wrong but I
don't think it is necessary: unless the person did put a "copyright"
line in the file, I think the person willingly relinquish its copyright
on the trivial modifications. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I won't do neither A nor B. But I agree for the files of Boost.Function
on which I hold a copyright to be converted to the Boost Software
License 1.0.
