Comment (by djowel):

 Also, from John:

 Another couple of bug reports, and a couple of feature requests as well
 (just tell me when to shut up!).

 The [category tag] markup inside the the main [library ..] block over-
 writes previous invocations, so for example in BoostBook I can assign a
 library to multiple categories (and if you look in boost.xml you'll see
 several that make use of this), but if I have:

 [library Boost.TypeTraits
 [copyright 2000 2005 blah blah]
 [purpose Meta-programming support library]
 [license blah blah]
 [authors [authors, various]]
 [category template]
 [category generic]
 [last-revision $Date: 2005/04/16 16:29:33 $]

 Then the last [category ...] seen over-writes whatever other invocations
 have been made (so the only category in the XML output is "generic" in
 this case).

 To fix this I tried escaping to BoostBook, but any attempt to put a '''
 escape inside a [library ..] block produced quickbook errors.
