"BoostBook" has a specific meaning here, being the additional
functionality that Boost has added on top of documentation in the
QuickBook format. It has nothing to do with tomes of knowledge.

Documentation in Boost exists in many formats from hand-written HTML to
BoostBook to other exotic formats.

The ones in the BoostBook format has the benefit of the uniform
generation lets us to provide things like monolithic PDF files, HTML
trees, etc.

If you want everything to be in the same documentation format, have fun
convincing authors of the merits and effort of rewriting their
documentation in your "preferred" style.
