Another format that IMO has a lot to recommend it is Emacs' Org mode.
It's very mature, completely programmable in all the ways I think Boost
needs, widely used, and well-supported outside of Boost. It has the
disadvantage of depending on Emacs (or Emacs+Vim --
http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=3342) and being
completely incompatible syntax with existing qbk. Mitigating factors:
those editors are free, we are talking about a syntax redesign anyhow,
and automated conversion should be possible.

Just something to consider before we invent a new programmable system.
