Interesting. Reading I see
that BSL is the recommended, but not required license. Above, you propose
to rip out a part of Boost because it's not BSL. Can you please point me to

- A document that say BSL is an absolute requirement
- A mailing list announcement that BSL is now an absolute requirement

I've no comment if such change is good or not, but I'm worried about such
global decision being made silently.
