yes, I have been using modular quickbook documents successfully. What I
haven't been able to do is have each (sub-)document have its own author,
and have those displayed in the resulting (html, pdf) document. The
component authors were simply ignored in my case.

Do you have an example of that use-case, i.e. where each part / chapter
/ whatever has a different author, which get translated to boostbook
such that each boostbook chapter also contains the respective author ?

On a slightly unrelated point: I read in
that possible document types are 'qandaset', 'reference', etc.
This intrigued me as I was writing a FAQ, so a qandaset seemed
appropriate (from a DocBook perspective). However, QuickBook doesn't
seem to have any markup that maps to qandaset elements. (And neither
reference elements for that matter). Can you give an example on how to
use qandaset in QuickBook ?
