It's a little bit misleading to look at just the error counts in that
list, because that checker also looks for missing Boost license info in
documentation, which doesn't really affect users. We would do well to
scan that list and make a short list of libraries that still use
non-BSL licenses for this release. I offer to do that tomorrow.
