The way Quickbook works, I believe it is impracticable to make *all* links to work unless the docs are in the right place in the
full Boost source code tree (or as I have done previously, a skeleton Boost tree containing all the essential stuff).

So readers must checkout/download the docs using github into readers Boost tree to get the documentation in all its glory. However,
I don't think that this is necessary to review the library.

This problem goes away when it is formally accepted and built by the Boost docs build process.

There are much more important issues to worry about in a review?
