I'll look into it.

BTW if you run bcp on a lib subdirectory, you'll get all the dependencies of
that lib's *test code*. That should include all the headers (one would
hope!), but it often includes a lot more as well (like Boost.Test for

picking on him because I've talked to him): Jeff Garland. He's listed as

so he doesn't have any non-BSL files. However, many date_file files are
listed in "Files With No Recognisable License".

Some of the regexes need updating to pick out the right wording, I just
haven't had a chance recently.

They are machine generated, some by scripts, some by the C preprocessor, I'm
still unsure how to handle these.
