As these are parameters, you can specify the value in your jamfile. So
if you don't want it, set boost.doxygen.detailns to a string that will
never match, e.g.

Looking at the xsl it uses 'contains' to check for detail namespaces,
so it's going to match anything including 'detail'. It could be
changed to something like: contains(concat('::',$fullname,'::'),
concat('::',$boost.doxygen.detailns,'::')). Although I wouldn't be
surprised if some documentation relies on the existing behaviour.

Can't do that in XSL, you'd have to work out how to do it in boost
build. It might just be a case of using globs to select the right
