Neat !

But Quickbook seems to me to meet the needs of Boost-type stuff very nicely.
(and once setup - the tricky bit - is virtually the same as Docbook etc).

Or does it need some work on it still?

Except that the conversion to pdf didn't work using FOP (but as I recall, for problems with graphics being inefficient for graphics
using bitmaps not vectors, and we didn't manage the equations in MathML rather than intrinsic problems?)

And it doesn't produce an automatic INDEX, as well as a Table of Contents.

So how can we produce a GSoC project out of this?
