I am not a lawyer, but I don't think your code needs to be accepted
into Boost to be released under the Boost Software License. I have a
few libraries already under the BSL but not (yet) in Boost, released
in the wild.

I also seem to recall that the default license for all 'unlicensed'
work is "All Rights Reserved."

Again though, IANAL.
