The license is the GPLv2 with the runtime exception, that it to say the
same license as libstdc++, the GCC C++ standard library.

While quite permissive, (it can be used with proprietary code) it is not
as permissive as the boost license.

Is some kind of integration with boost utilities possible? Several parts
of TBB were being worked on in boost, and reusing their code may prove
useful since it is a very robust and efficient library.
