Alrighty, unless there are objections, I going after 2. Seems there
are 1.4 users..., so, I think John's suggestion is best. Start with
1.5. That means, I'll be bumping the version and start from there.
1.5 will have these changes:

* The conditional generation
* Macro scopes will be at document/section/template bodies
* Ditto for template scopes
* There will be an implicit include guard. A qbk file will only
   be included once per scope (like pragma once).
* 1.4 and lower will not be affected with these changes.
