This was changed to BSL in current cvs already

Well, I thought it was enough ;-)
Especially because all files (should) have stated:

// Permission to copy, use, modify, sell and distribute this software is
// granted provided this copyright notice appears in all copies. This
// software is provided "as is" without express or implied warranty, and
// with no claim as to its suitability for any purpose.

So I thought that changing to the equivalent BSL would not be such an
issue, especially because all that matters is the fact that the
copyright itself stays. But luckily I'm no lawyer.

Yes I can. I'm in charge of the Boost issue here, and the author of all
the files, so I can give you the permission:

You may change these files to the Boost Software License.

I hope this is sufficient.
