I just took a look at this and it looks pretty nice.  There are three
things you'll need to do to get it upstream:

1.) Create a bug report at http://www.cmake.org/Bug and send me the #.

2.) Modify the interface to be compatible with the current FindBoost.cmake.

3.) Agree to distribute it under the CMake license instead of the
3-clause BSD.  It looks like the only difference is this additional
clause in CMake's license:

 * Modified source versions must be plainly marked as such, and must
   not be misrepresented as being the original software.
