 Yes, this is definitely needed.

 {{{boost://libs/mpl/index.html}}} is probably wrong, as the {{{://}}}
 usually indicates that the first past part of the path is a server name.
 {{{boost:/libs/mpl/index.html}}} or perhaps
 {{{boost:libs/mpl/index.html}}} is better.

 Another possibility is to just do this for paths starting with '/', as
 that does suggest the root of the distribution. I like this, as I'm not
 keen on inventing our own protocol name. But 'boost:' will work very well
 if $boost.root == '' - so it'll be ideal for candidate

 I'll attach an updated patch which implements what I described, and also
 fixes a small bug when the link is from a sub-directory.

 I'll bring this up on the Boost Docs list soon, as someone might have a
 better idea.
