Done, I've added the Aliases to blanket-permission.txt, and fixed up the
regex scanning to pick up on Robert Ramey's web address.

confused about the file boost/archive/impl/basic_xml_grammar.hpp .

Because it has *two* licences in it. Not much we can do about that.

with no recognizable copyright holder. The latter are all MPL though.

Yep, I wish we could handle those better, and it looks like we still need
another push to get rid of those files with no license at all.

obvious munging, though I don't know if I should be looking for anything

> Is bcp being enhanced to annotate which Boost modules are entirely BSLed
and which aren't yet? This could go in the Input Information section; each
module could have a tag saying "Not BSLed", "BSLed, But Dependent On Modules
Not BSLed", and "BSLed".

Maybe, probably it would just have to be a Yes or no answer - bcp can't
really tell which file "belongs" to whom.

directory names in boost/libs is catching everything or not.

I use "." as the module name, of course then it flags up a whole load of new
problems :-(
