We can take advantage of being within the Boost "namespace" within our docs
and just say things like "See the Test library for me details, and look at
the cool Python library." I thinking capitalizing the name of the library
will make things clear enough.

Data point: When I posted my review with subject "Review: Test library", was
there any ambiguity regarding what the review was of?
