Currently, HnxGC is not under the Boost Software License, but it is probably possible that
in near or later future, we will release a version of HnxGC under Boost Software License.
Prior to doing that, I want to be sure that whether or not the Boost License is conflicting with
patented/patent-pending technologies. Could any body give me some successful examples
of patents under Boost Software License, or explain it?
