I understand things differently. I thought the point of the report was to flag
files that hadn't been thought about. Since these files aren't under the BSL,
and can't be made to be, the boostinspect::nolicense was added precisely to
address this issue, so files like these didn't clutter the report.

If that's not the intention, I can revert the changes.

OK, I'll check those in more detail.
