Hmm - on IE and Navigator I can slide the frame all the way to the right and
make the navigation window disappear. This also raise the question about
browsers that don't support frames. It would be my understanding that usage
of frames would also make documentation un-displayable on some browsers.

I would like to see one package done in boost book before we impose such a
requirement. When I go to the NightlyCVS link in the main boost page it
shows what looks like boost book generated main page (whose aesthetics I'm
not crazy about). When I click on one of the items it's a dead link. This
gives me the impression that is still in development and that
there are still too many pending issues to impose such a requirement.

I think the boost documentation information is pretty good and
helps promote this idea. I think it should used as a starting point.
