At least it helps to quash inspect failures ;-).

I'm no lawyer but from my point of view it does make a difference. For
example, the SGI license doesn't explicitly say that it doesn't give any
warranty regarding non-infringement. The Boost license does. So it seems
the SGI license is less "water-tight" and adding the Boost license makes
things clearer for people evaluating the files.
