The license statement of Kicad is: 'it is licensed under GPLv3' - the BSL
ist not mentioned.
Kicad has copied all files from the boost lib into one file - including all
copyrigth statements + BSL
(all put at the top of the file) - and a new library, which is now
intergral part of kicad, was created.
