It's interesting that Boost.Predef has both QBK sources and generated HTML
output in the repository. I was considering doing this for Boost.Align but
did not want repository history affected by commits around generation of

Now that we're on git, and each library's repository already has two
branches (master,d develop), maybe it would be a good idea to institute (as
policy) or support (in our infrastructure) a third branch for

1. It serves the users who want to easily view documentation for a given
library's repository. (They can clone that documentation branch).
2. It doesn't require us to put generated documentation output in our main
development branches.
