We wanted the doxygen created reference to have three sections: date_time,
gregorian, & posix_time with a fourth to be added later (local_time).
Boostbook generated a boostbook file for each section, however, all three
boostbook files had the same section and title tags. Our script rewrites
those tags and adds a copyright notice.

It's a bit of extra work but we have a nicely nested set of reference docs
as a result.

Building the docs from anywhere other than
boost_root/libs/date_time/xmldoc will not produce the boostbook files but
simply uses them.
