Do we need two reports? One (posted regularly to the list, and nagged
about) which reports files which have neither a boost license nor
boostinspect::nolicense; the other which also includes those files which
have boostinspect::nolicense (and hence can be assumed to be under a
non-boost license). The latter report would be useful to users cautious
about license issues; the former would be useful to developers who need
to clean things up.

If not, what is the point of boostinspect::nolicense?
