'sphinxcontrib.apidoc' has now been added to requirements [1]. The
README [2] provides a far more detailed overview of how one can migrate
from the pbr features than I gave above and I'd advise anyone making
changes to their documentation to follow that guide. Feel free to ping
me here or on IRC (stephenfin) if you've any questions.

Next up: deprecating this feature in pbr.
