it was proposed we could just eliminate support for non-sphinx based
methods of building the docs. This would require sphinx >= 1.0 and
python-docutils 0.6 to build the docs.

The win for us would be to eliminate some custom python scripting in the
build process to fake some small part of sphinx functionality; it would
also allow us to use more features of sphinx in the .rst source.

Version 1.0 of sphinx is from 2010, and is present e.g. in Debian

We are having a bit of dependency creep here. One option would be to
generate seperate tarballs of the pre-formatted man pages during the
release process; this _should_ be a matter of running "tar" on the build
