Unless I completely miss the point I don't think licensing issues play any
role here. What is suggested is not to integrate any boost code with any Qt
code, but instead to provide an interface for boost *users* to more easily
access build parameters used when developing *with* boost libraries.
I don't think there is much value in providing alternative build tools to
build boost itself. If building boost is an issue for people, let's
1) enhance boost.build itself and
2) provide more convenient (e.g. modular) binary boost packages.
