I think you can achieve that if you make each sub-library docs as a separate
document, not a part included into the whole Boost.Core document. You'll have
to compile each sub-library docs separately in the Jamfile. This way it was
done in Boost.Utility before we moved the components from there.

Naturally, you'll need to generate the root Boost.Core page from a separate
QuickBook document, and insert links to the sub-library docs in it. I suspect,
this won't work well with PDF.
