I'm currently reading through the introduction. It looks nice overall, 
but I have the following comments:
* the last sentence of the first paragraph could be reworded, maybe 
like this: "The framework allows inter-application messaging as well as 
intra-application messaging, and it will always use the most effective 
mechanism for the communication automatically."
* The classes titles in the classes overview should probably be links 
to the respective class
* Typo in the BMessage overview FindBook() -> FindBool()
* With scripting, maybe also hint to the drag&drop protocol?
* In the BLooper introduction in the first paragraph, maybe it should 
be mentioned that a BLooper can have any number of BHandlers (and is a 
BHandler itself) before writing that it would choose a BHandler to 
handle the message.
* Also all methods mentioned in the text (like AddBool(), AddHandler(), 
...) should be links to make the documentation more usable.
* The warning in BHandler "baseclassMessageReceived()" looks messed up.

Nice work, anyway!
