Wow... Quick consensus :)
We have talked with Rene and we agree that this is the best approach.

We have been playing with the idea of moving most of the website
content to a quickbook based style.

Imagine we complete the Quickbook Trac Wikiprocessor

If we have this tool, I think that editing the wiki and our docs will
be a breeze.
This is why I think that we should move all possible content to qbks,
allowing copy and paste between the wiki and the docs.
You first start hacking at the wiki, and when something has the right
quality you can move it to the website. It will be all quickbook...
so... no problems :)

I want to add website support to boostbook for this reason, I think we
can generate the complete website from qbks in the future.

King regards
