I've been playing with this since I wanted to start using the  
sphinx.ext.autoclass (and now repoze.sphinx.autointerface) to generate  
the Grok docs.

However, the HTML differs between autoclass and autointerface - it'd  
be nice it they were more similar. In particular:

  *  <dl class="interface"> is needed to style the block.
  * The word "Interface:" should have a <span class="interfacelabel">  
or something around it so that it can be hidden using CSS if desired.
  * <tt class="descinterfacename"> and <tt class="descname">
  * Permalinks (those wierd-o backwards P characters ¶) are missing

And looking at the source it looks like it the package mostly just  
slots in the docutils-generated HTML - so I guess it could take some  
wrangling to make changes to the generated HTML ...

One other small thing, the install_requires for the package doesn't  
declare that it requires docutils >= 0.5.

autoclass html

<dl class="class">
<dt id="grok.Application">
<!--[grok.Application]-->class <tt class="descclassname">grok.</tt><tt  
class="descname">Application</tt><a class="headerlink"  
href="#grok.Application" title="Permalink to this definition">¶</a></dt>
<dd>A top-level application object.</dd></dl>

autointerface html

<dl class="docutils">
<dt>Interface: <tt class="docutils literal"><span  
<dd><p class="first">Marker-interface for grok application factories.</ 
<p class="last">Used to register applications as utilities to look  
them up and provide a
list of grokked applications.</p>
