FWIW before doxygen2boostbook.xml is run, there's another xsl script
called collect.xsl which pulls together all the xml files that doxygen
generates into a single file. This reads in the list of files from a
file called index.xml. Its path is a bit unpredictable, but it can be
found using something like:

    find bin.v2/libs/vmd -name index.xml

That file is the file which determines the order of the headers. I
don't know if it's possible to modify collect.xsl to sort the order,
but if it is then it might be better than doxygen2boostbook.xsl as
it's a simpler xsl script.
