I've put "boost.org" there intentionally. The reason is that I'm not
interested in those files, don't want to put my copyright just for legal
reasons, and lastly, this way if someone else changes a test --- which
is very likely, he won't have to think about updating copyright. Is
"boost.org" a problem?
