If you're interested, we've converted a few Boost library
documentation from HTML to Asciidoc. For example:

- Boost.Endian:

- Boost.IO:

- Boost.Smart_Ptr:

The Asciidoc files and Jamfiles involved in these projects (and others
- e.g. Boost.Mp11, Boost.Variant2, Boost.Assert, Boost.System are all
Asciidoc too) should highlight how straightforward this would be if
you choose to adopt it. The asciidoctor tool is also fairly easy to
run for users to generate this documentation themselves, compared to
Quickbook+Boostbook. I'm told it is simpler and easier to run than
Sphinx too.
