That's possible right now on the incubator. It doesn't include all the
boost libraries - but it easily could.

I would love to see a whole restructuring of the Boost website and all
the stuff it's connected to. I agree it sorely needed. Actually the
incubator is my vision for Boost 2.0 - an easily navigable facade/lense
through which to view all of boost in a coherent way.

But as has been noted, website scripting is may more hacky and
problematic than C++, and that's saying something.
