My 2nd pass at it is now in CVS (tools/build/new/boostbook.jam). The
generators seem to be generating happily, and it was actually quite trivial
to get an XInclude scanner working for XML documents. Kudos to the BBv2
developers for a _very_ extensible build system.

I'm fighting a little bit with the documentation system living in a compiler's
world. My documents end up in "bin/gcc/debug/", whereas the current directory
would be more appropriate. I know I could just override the target path, but
I'm wondering if there's some better way to say "these features don't apply
to me".
