I might be able to help with doxygen+Quickbook - getting the toolchain set up is

If you've got it set up right, then you should be able to rebuild the existing
docs in the modular-boost tree.

Or I could start with your plain text notes, perhaps pasted onto to a plain text
dump of the existing html, and edit this in Quickbook syntax and you (and
others) can view the result.

A GIT branch sounds essential.

But I can't do this for a few weeks :-(
