Jon -

I've added a significant amount of polish. It works and it looks
pretty. The code is in the "sphinx-wip" branch of [1], gitweb at [2],
and Read the Docs built copy at [3].

There's roughly 30 commits there that I think are getting ready for
merging. The rest is scripted conversion of some DocBook templates for
demonstration purposes; I think the final conversion should be done by
the authors of the documents when they are ready to ditch the DocBook
templates in the same commit.

I also think I've now spearheaded this pretty close to a point where
more benefits can be gained by merging the work to docs-next, and
collaborating there.

Let me know what you think.


PS. I never thought I'd do this much perl coding in my life. It didn't
kill me, I must be stronger now.
