Looks nice. I am not familiar with asciidoc...

* Does ascii interface with Doxygen? For example, can you embed in the
asciidoc output a reference section generated by Doxygen and have
hyperlinks in between the ascidoc and Doxygen sections? (Similar to
Quickbook [xinclude ...].)

* Does asciidoc allow to show code snips marked in an external source
file? For example, to show example code snips in Quickbook using
[import <file-name>] and then [abc], where //[abc ... //] are used as
markers in file-name.

This is my experience as well. For example, if there was a
"pre-compiled" distributable of Quickbook that did not require to
download Boost and did not use BJam (as least not require to the users
to use BJam directly), Quickbook would be easier to use.
