Boost-Build :

I've just checked in a *very* rough cut at the BoostBook version of the
v2 User Manual into v2/doc/userman.xml. It's basically a straight
conversion of boost_build_v2.html, with a couple of tweaks to fit it
into Docbook.

I've also added a Jamfile.v2 in the same directory, which can be used to
build the docs if the boostbook toolset is configured on your system.
Note that while the docs build fine using boostbook, the xml is still
not 100% valid to the DTD, so I'll be cleaning that up over the next day
or so.

Nothing has been done to clean up the content as yet, but there's been
some discussion of reorganization, so now's your chance to give us your
docs wishlist.

I'm going to move the BoostBook stylesheet discussion over to the
documentation list, since it's been quiet there lately and there might
be readers there that can help or give feedback. If you're interested
and not on that list, sign up here:
