OK, patch attached.

Creates a new xsl:param: "boost.section.newpage.depth" which acts much like
chunk.section.depth but on PDF rather than HTML output. Defaults to 1 (put
top level sections on new page only). A more detailed description is in the
patch - is there anywhere to document Boost-specific xsl:param's BTW?

OK to commit?

I note that there are still issues with Doxygen generated reference docs.
In particular "Synopsis" block titles are rendered in a much larger font
that should be used - often larger than the title of the enclosing section
:-( This is particularly noticeable in the PDF builds, but is true of the
HTML docs as well.

Seem's like the problem is that the reference docs use a mixture of section,
refentry, synopsis and refsect2 blocks. Unfortunately, our ability to
format these consistently is nothing like our ability to control nested
sections. Would we lose anything if we replaced all these different blocks
with nested sections throughout?

Cheers, John.
