They would not need to, as stated, it is simple to take what is needed
thanks to bcp, only thing needed is docbook, which is a *lot* more
prevalent than Sphinx and more well known.  The useful thing about
quickbook over Sphinx is it is designed for C++ project documentation
in a variety of formats, from html pages, single html document, pdf,
man pages, straight docbook, etc...
