I'm using Sphinx v1.0.1 and there does not appear to be a sane way to
handle C++ const member functions. For example:

.. cpp:class:: butterflyfio::Array<T,d>

   A simple template class for arrays of datatype ``T`` of length

   .. cpp:function:: T& operator[]( unsigned j )

      Returns a modifiable reference to the ``j`` th index in the

   .. cpp:function:: const T& operator[]( unsigned j ) const

      Returns an immutable reference to the ``j`` th index in the
array. This
      is used when working with constant arrays.

This incorrectly renders the last function with arguments "( unsigned
j const )" rather than "( unsigned j ) const". If I remove the const
at the end of "const T& operator[]( unsigned j ) const", then Sphinx
crashes with the following output:
