>From my point of view, as a boost user at a company, I can tell you that if
boost had different licenses on different libraries, that would be a
problem for me. It is extremely handy that we can be confident that all of
the code in the boost distribution is under a common license.

If a particular library wants to be dual licensed, that's probably fine,
but one of those licenses had better be BSL.
