It isn't supported at all in 1.5, it interprets all indented
paragraphs as code blocks which causes odd results. In 1.6 you can use
the explicit element markup:

[article Nested List
[quickbook 1.6]

            Item 1 - paragraph 1

            Item 1 - paragraph 2
            Item 2 - paragraph 1

            Item 2 - paragraph 2

That works today, there's a warning that 1.6 is still in development,
but they should both be in the final version. I'm going to check '1.6
alpha' into trunk soon after the boost release (i.e. early July) which
will be the basis for 1.6.0.

If you're interested you can see my latest development in a temporary
git repo at:

The quickbook-1.6 branch is going into trunk in July. To build it you
need to set the BOOST_ROOT environment variable.
