Here is what I would like to see:

for each library a directory structure like the following:

                Jamfile.v2 // maybe builds html from docbook
                Jamfile.v2 // maybe builds html from docbook
                 Jamfile.v2 // maybe builds docbook from quickbooks
                 // nothing to build - util someone makes meta-quikbooks or

with the tar ball shipped with the html pre-built.

I would also like to see a simple, documented, reliable, procedure for
building at least
the html from its generator(s). So if I'm using SVN I could just generate
all the html
on my local machine.
